Govet does simple checking of Go source code.
It checks for simple errors in calls to functions named
Print Printf Println
Fprint Fprintf Fprintln
Sprint Sprintf Sprintln
Error Errorf
Fatal Fatalf
If the function name ends with an 'f', the function is assumed to take
a format descriptor string in the manner of fmt.Printf. If not, govet
complains about arguments that look like format descriptor strings.

govet [flag] [directory ...] # Scan all .go files under directory, recursively
The flags are:
Verbose mode
A comma-separated list of print-like functions to supplement
the standard list. Each entry is in the form Name:N where N
is the zero-based argument position of the first argument
involved in the print: either the format or the first print
argument for non-formatted prints. For example,
if you have Warn and Warnf functions that take an
io.Writer as their first argument, like Fprintf,
