Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Writing to a text file, part of Up and Running with Go.
- Now that I've covered…the basic syntax of the Go programming language,…I'll show you how to accomplish some common tasks.…And I'll start with writing a file…to the local file system.…I'm working the file named writeFile.go.…And I've declared a string variable…with a simple string.…I also have an empty function down here…called checkError that receives an error argument.…I'll start by adding some imports up here.…I'll add a package named io.…And another one named os, for operating system.…
Next, in the main function,…I'll declare a reference to a file object.…I'll name it file.…And the method I'm about to call,…is also going to return an error object.…I'll assign those values from os.Create.…And I'll pass in a string of ./fromString.txt.…Now that file doesn't exist yet,…so this is a pointer to a file that I can create.…Now, I have to handle the error,…but I'm going to be calling a couple…of different methods that might generate an error,…so I'm going to consolidate all my error handling code here,…in my function named checkError.…
