Rewrite of Python's builtin doctest module with AST instead of REGEX


What is a doctest? It is example code you write in a docstring! What is a docstring? Its a string you use as a comment! They get attached to Python functions and classes as metadata. They are often used to auto-generate documentation. Why is it cool? Because you can write tests while you code!

The ``xdoctest`` package is a re-write of Python's builtin ``doctest`` module. It replaces the old regex-based parser with a new abstract-syntax-tree based parser (using Python's ``ast`` module). The goal is to make doctests easier to write, simpler to configure, and encourage the pattern of test driven development.

This package contains the xdoctest command line tool
