Golang: Compile and Run

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Copy and paste the following into a file, name the file “test.go”.

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
    fmt.Println("i love cats")
}

To run go program, in terminal type go run test.go

To compile go program, in terminal type go build test.go

This will create a compiled file named “test”.

Compiled file can be run directly, for example ./test

If you have a question, put $5 at patreon and message me.
