pyparsing: parseString confusion

My understanding of parseString seems flawed: I thought the grammar must
match the string in its entirety, based on the following from the howto:
"scanString allows you to scan through the input source string for
random matches, instead of exhaustively defining the grammar for the
entire source text (as would be required with parseString)"
>>> from pyparsing import *
I'd expect this to raise an exception. What am I missing here?
