Sample text

There is no formality when returning more than one value from a function or method; we simply list the types we are returning after the function or method’s name and ensure that we have at least one return statement that has a corresponding list of values. Pop() method is used to remove and return the top (last added) item from the stack. Top() method it returns the item and a nil error, or if the stack is empty, a nil item and a non-nil error. The method must have a receiver that is a pointer since it modifies the stack by removing the returned item.

1, ➤ 192). Args variable is a slice of strings (14 ➤, ➌). 2, ➤ 148). For now it is sufficient 16 Chapter 1. An Overview in Five Examples to know that a slice’s length can be determined using the built-in len() function and its elements can be accessed using the [] index operator using a subset of the Python syntax. In particular, slice[n] returns the slice’s nth element (counting from zero), and slice[n:] returns another slice which has the elements from the nth element to the last element. In the collections chapter we will see the full generality of Go’s syntax in this area.

We could have used the same variable declaration syntax for both, but have used a longer form for the lowPrimes slice to show the syntactic difference and for a reason that will be explained in a moment. ). The bigdigits program needs to import only four packages. 5, ➤ 93). The log package provides logging functions. Args variable of type []string (slice of strings) that holds the command-line arguments. And the path package’s filepath package provides functions for manipulating filenames and paths that work across platforms.
