Arrays in Go lang

What is ArrayAn array is the collection of similar type of elements.An array is the collection of fixed length.Array elements are stored in contiguous memory locations.All the array elements share the common name, but each element is uniquely identified their index or subscript, so the array is also called a subscript variable.Array index always starts with 0. Creating an array var arr [5]int Note: In the above program snippet, arr is an array of 5 integers.By default, all the array elements are initialized with a default value. Default ValuesData TypeDefault ValueInt(s)0Float(s)0.0bool(s)falseObjectsnil
Note: Following example demonstrate the default values for array elements.
Example-1 package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
var arr1 [5]int
var arr2 [5]float32
var arr3 [5]string
var arr4 [5]bool
} Output  [0 0 0 0 0] [0 0 0 0 0] [    ] [false false false false false] Example-2 package main
import "fmt"

Decision Making in Go lang

Introduction to decision making Sometimes we need to introduce a power in our program, that our program should automatically make the decision.

For example:  if the temperature of the day is more than 20 degree then it's hot otherwise it's cool.

To introduce this kind of power in our program, we use decision making statements as the list below...
if-else statementsnested if-else statementselse-if ladderswitch/case-control statement Let's create a program to check whether a number is even or odd. Program to check a number is even or odd in Go lang. package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
var n int32
fmt.Print("Enter any number:")
if n % 2 == 0 {
fmt.Println(n,"is even")
} else {
fmt.Println(n,"is odd")
} Output: Enter any number:55
55 is odd  Explanation:A number is even if it is divisible by 2 otherwise odd.So to check a number is even or odd, we need to check divisibility by 2.To perform the divisibility test we use mod (%…

Looping in go lang

Loop is a structure with the block of statements can be repeated for the finite number of times. 
Till Now we have learned the programs that execute sequentially, Now we are going to learn control structures which change the normal flow of the program and helps you to create more meaningful and compact program structure.

To understand more, suppose we want to print from 1 to 10 number counting, each number should be printed in the new line.
Program to print numbers from 1 to 10 package main
import "fmt"
func main( ) {
} Another compact way to create this program use loop. The following example creates this program using the loop. Program package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
i := 1 //initialization
for i <= 10 { //condition
fmt.Println(i) //statement
i = i + 1 //updates
} Output 1
10With the above program sn…

Convert Temperature from Fahrenheit to centigrade

The formula to convert temperature from Fahrenheit to Centigrade is as below...C = ( F - 32 ) * 5 / 9
where C and F are temperature in Centigrade and Fahrenheit in respectively. package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
var f float32
fmt.Print("Enter the temperature in fahrenheit: ")
c := ( f - 32 ) * 5 / 9
fmt.Printf("Temprature in centigrade: %.2f",c)

Constant in Go lang

Constant in go langConstants are basically variable which value can't change once created.Constants are created in the same way as variables, the only difference is that to create a variable use var keyword and to create constant use const keyword. Constant Example-1 package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
const playerName string = "Rahul"
//playerName = "Micky" //compile time error, cannot assign to playerName.
} Constant Example-2 package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
const METER_PER_FEET = 0.3048
var feet,meter float32
fmt.Print("Enter value in feet...")
meter = feet * METER_PER_FEET
fmt.Printf("Meter %.2f",meter)
}  Note:In the above example, METER_PER_FEET is a constant.It is suggested that constant name should be written in uppercase, each word separated by an underscore so can be easily identified.

Simple interest in go lang

package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
var p int
var r float32
var t int
fmt.Print("Enter principal, rate and time: ")
si := float32(p) * float32(t) * r / 100
fmt.Printf("Simple interest: %.2f",si)
} Explanation  Most of the things of the above program are already discussed. bur some of the important statement is discussed here. si := float32(p) * float32(t) * r / 100
The above program statement performs a simple calculation p * t * r / 100 and stores the result in variable si. In go lang in a single expression multiple types are not allowed, so we need to convert p and t into float32 type and expression p * t * r becomes a float32 type expression.To typecast a variable we use the following syntax type(var)
 In the above program snippet to print the result fmt.Printf("Simple interest : %.2f",si).Printf() is a function used to print the formatted output.%.2f prints a floating point value with only 2 decimal places.

Identify Variable type and values in go lang

package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
var name string = "Mahesh"
age := 25
price := 300.40
fmt.Printf("%T %v\n",name,name)
fmt.Printf("%T %v\n",age,age)
fmt.Printf("%T %v\n",price,price)
} Output string Mahesh
int 25
float64 300.4
ExplanationIn the above program snippet, we use Printf() functionof fmt package to print the formatted output.Withing the Printf( ) %T and %v is called format specifier which represents the output format.%T represents the Type, which prints the variable type%v represents the variable's value.age := 25, creates a variable age with the short variable declaration and assign the value 25. In this case, the variable automatically receives the type and here age is the type of int.price:=300.40, In this statement price, is created of type float64 because float64 is the default type of floating values in go lang. To create a float32 type variable you need to create a variable as given below.\n is called escape seque…

Sum of two numbers in go lang

package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
var a,b int
a = 5
b = 10
sum := a + b
fmt.Println("Total = ",sum)
} Explanationvar a,b int: declare two variable a and b. Learn here how to create variablea = 5 and b = 10 assign 5,10 to a,b respectivelysum:= a + b:  adds a and b and store the result in sum as well as created sum variable with the short variable declaration (:=). fmt.Println("Total = ",sum): prints the result as Total = 15 ImprovementsAbove program always returns fixed result Total = 15, because a and b are initialized with fixed value 5, 10 respectively.So this program can be improved by using user input.As well as above program variable declaration and initialization can be done in a single statement as shown here var a,b int = 5 , 10
var a,b = 5 , 10 Sum of two numbers with user input package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
var a,b int
fmt.Print("Enter any two numbers: ")
sum := a + b
fmt.Println("Total …

Variable Naming & Scope of Variable

Rules for Creating the variable nameVariable name can contain Alphabets (A-Z/a-z), Digits (0-9) and Underscore( _ ).A variable name must start with alphabet or underscore.Spaces and special systems are not allowed.Reserved words are not allowed as a variable name.A variable name should be meaningful.Go is case sensitive language so age, Age, AGE all are treated as a different variable. Some correct variable namesnamefather_namefatherName__AGEnumber1car_modal_nameis_verifiedintnum Some incorrect variable names father's_namefather#name2persons0007000Nameinta#b Note There are two popular ways to create multi-word variables. player_name: Each word is separated by an underscoreplayerName: camel case, the first word is in small and from second word first letter of each word is capitalized. Variable Scope Scope is the range of places where a variable is allowed to be used is called variable scope.Variable Scope can be of two typesLocal variables Local variables are those which are allowed…

Variables in Go lang

What is variable Variable is an entity which can change during the problem. For example: y = x + 5xy162738
As shown in the above example, as the value of x is changing y gets changed. so in the above expression x and y are variable and 5 is a constant.
In programming whenever you create a variable, a memory is reserved and a name is assigned to it. If initialized with value then binary value of that will gets stored in memory otherwise initialized with default value. Following figure shows the memory map of a variable. Creating a variable var name string = "Hello Go"
In the above example, a variable is created labeled with the name of type string and initialized with value "Hello Go". the var keyword is used to create a variable. var name = "Hello Go"
 In the above code snippet, the only difference is that data type is not given, because when you initialize the variable then compiler automatically adopts the type from the initialized value. name := "H…

Boolean in go lang

Boolean (named on gorge bool) is a special 1 bit value which represents true or false.In Go lang, true and false are two reserved literals which represent Boolean values.Like some other programming language C, C++, go doesn't allow 1 at the place of true and 0 at the place of 0.Boolean values can be combined with logical operators. List of the logical operators is given below.&&AND||OR!NOT Logical operators&& (AND) and || (OR) operators are used to combine two or more Boolean values/expressions.! (Not) operator also called negation, just reverse the Boolean values.!true results false!false results true&& (AND) operator returns true if all the conditions are true.|| (OR) operator returns true if any one condition is true.The outcome of the combination will be based on the following truth table. Truth table for && (AND) and || (OR) operatorC1C2C1 && C2C1 || C2falsefalsefalsefalsefalsetruefalsetruetruefalsefalsetruetruetruetruetrue Example-1: …

String in golang

Strings are sequence of characters with definite length and can be created by enclosing in double quotes "Hello Go" and back ticks `Hello Go`. A string is a sequence of characters.Strings are the collection of individual bytes, where each character occupy single byte.Characters out of the ASCII characters (can say characters from other languages) occupy more than one byte.A string can be created by enclosing in double quotes "Hello Go" or backticks `Hello Go`.The difference between double quotes and backticks is that double quotes allow escape sequences like \n (newline) and \t (tab) and parses them but backticks don't. Example-1: package main
import "fmt"
func main( ) {
        fmt.Println(len("Hello Go"))
        fmt.Println("Hello Go"[1])
        fmt.Println("Hello"+" "+"Go")
} Output: 8101Hello Go 
 Output Explained:

fmt.Println(len("Hello Go")) returns the length of the string "Hell…

Floating point Data types in Go lang

As we have discussed, In our previous article Data types in go lang, In Go lang Numbers can be categorized into two broad categories. Integral NumbersFloating point Numbers We have already discussed integral numbers In this article we will discuss all floating point numbers.
Floating point Numbers Floating point numbers are those which contains decimal places, for example (2.34 , -90.435 , 0.00007) Rules for floating point numbers 
Floating point number can contain decimal places, For example (0.006, 2.45)Can be +ve and -ve.Floating point number can be written in two formatsFixed format, example (0.007)Exponent format, example (0.7 E -4)0.7 E -4 is equivalent to 0.7 * 10 <sup>-4</sup>In 0.7 E -4, 0.7 (part before e) is called mantissa and -4 (part after E) is called exponent.Exponent format is used when a number is too large or too small to represent in decimal places.Floating point number can be of 32bits or 64bits in size in go lang.float32 represents 32 bits floating poi…

Data Types in Go language

Data type defines a set of related values, describe the operations that can be done on them and define the way the stored in memory.  For example: Suppose you have a Car of VW Polo, but a car can be of any other company with some other basic and some advanced features.
But if we called a name Car, then in your mind a picture is created that there is a vehicle with 4-wheels and steering. Each car has some features like the color, company, make, model etc.

Types in programming work in a similar way, For example, "Hello World" is a string and every string have some length.

Numbers Go Comes with different types to represent numbers, Numbers can be categorized into two broad categories...
Integer The integer represents only those numbers which don't include any decimal places and can be of any positive and negative numbers. Example : {1, 3, -4, 11, 123, 534} all are integer numbers
Go's integer type can be uint8, uint16, uint32, uint64, int8, int16, int32, and int64. 8, 1…

Say Hello world in Go lang

Writing your first program "Hello World" package main
import "fmt"
func main( ) {
       fmt.Print("Hello World")
} Understanding the program line by line As we have discussed in the overview of go lang that Go program is organized in the various package. Here first statement package main specifies that this program will belong to the package main.Next line import "fmt" includes the predefined package fmt in your program so that you can use the functions (features) of this package in your program. Here import is the keyword in go lang use to import package(s).fmt stands for the format, fmt package has the various pre-defined function like Print, Println, Printf to print the formatted text and other methods like Scanf for reading the formatted values.Next Line defines the main() function, which is the starting point of every program. func is a keyword in go lang to define a function.Within the main() function we have written fmt.Print("Hello…
