There are many resources available to help us learn Go.

Go Doc

Go includes a program go doc for extracting and viewing documentation from .go files. For information about a package, use the command go doc followed by the package name.

go doc fmt

For information about a package function, use the command go doc followed by the package name, a period then the function name.

go doc fmt.Println

When searching for information about Go, you may want to consider searching Golang instead of Go, as it is more specific.



Use the go doc command to see the entirety of Go’s fmt documentation.


Now check the documentation for fmt‘s Println function.


Pull up the documentation for the time package’s Now function.
