No, you had phrased it perfectly. I just read your answer too fast. My bad.

You are right. I didn't read the link because I assumed it would be
general information about modules and I didn't connect that with the
problem I was having using the interactive shell. No I checked it and
saw that, in fact, the relevant information was right there in the
first paragraphs. My apologies. Thanks for your help.
