Ask for a new line at the end but then says incorrect when one is added.

It asked to add a new line at the end of the code, and so I did. But then it said to try again even though I did what it asked to do.

starter.py
import os
import sys
import logging
import match
import search

from re

Hi David!

Python and the tests are kind of unforgiving about discrepancies.

So, two issues:

1) They just want each import on a separate line.

2) The file must end with one trailing newline (last line of file blank).

So this passes:

import os
import sys
import logging
from re import match
from re import search

(In the challenge/task, there should be six lines, the last one being blank)

It should look like:

1  import os
2  import sys
3  import logging
4  from re import match
5  from re import search
6

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
