What about the #!/usr/bin/env python3 line at the beginning of a file. Does it interfere with doing a doc test?

Hiya Stephen! It doesnt interfere with your tests at all. This namespace references to the "environment" object in your Python file system , and it tells Python interpreter to look for the current "environment" before executing the code below. If you're using Linux OS or MAC OS , you're required to mention this namespace , but if you're on windows, ya dont need to worry about it at all. I hope it helped! (:
