The Go Package, How Meta

10 March 2013

I think this chapter is my favorite so far. Not too many languages have a usable library to parse and examine the source code of the language itself. Or if they do, they aren’t as well designed as the go package.

The new chapter has 5 great examples, with some great real world use cases. You might not use them every day, but they can definitely improve your understanding of the language and might just come in handy. I’ll be turning one of the examples into a blog post, but if you want the whole things you’ll need to pick up a copy.
