This is the source code repository for the Go programming language.
For documentation about how to install and use Go,
visit or load doc/install-source.html
in your web browser.
After installing Go, you can view a nicely formatted
doc/install-source.html by running godoc --http=:6060
and then visiting http://localhost:6060/doc/install/source.
Unless otherwise noted, the Go source files are distributed
under the BSD-style license found in the LICENSE file.
Binary Distribution Notes
If you have just untarred a binary Go distribution, you need to set
the environment variable $GOROOT to the full path of the go
directory (the one containing this README). You can omit the
variable if you unpack it into /usr/local/go, or if you rebuild
from sources by running all.bash (see doc/install.html).
You should also add the Go binary directory $GOROOT/bin
to your shell's path.
For example, if you extracted the tar file into $HOME/go, you might
put the following in your .profile:
export GOROOT=$HOME/go
export PATH=$PATH:$GOROOT/bin
See doc/install.html for more details.
