This is the source code repository for the Go programming language. For documentation about how to install and use Go, visit http://golang.org/ or load doc/install.html in your web browser. After installing Go, you can view a nicely formatted doc/install.html by running godoc --http=:6060 and then visiting http://localhost:6060/doc/install.html. Unless otherwise noted, the Go source files are distributed under the BSD-style license found in the LICENSE file. -- Binary Distribution Notes If you have just untarred a binary Go distribution, you need to set the environment variable $GOROOT to the full path of the go directory (the one containing this README). You can omit the variable if you unpack it into /usr/local/go, or if you rebuild from sources by running all.bash (see doc/install.html). You should also add the Go binary directory $GOROOT/bin to your shell's path. For example, if you extracted the tar file into $HOME/go, you might put the following in your .profile: export GOROOT=$HOME/go export PATH=$PATH:$GOROOT/bin See doc/install.html for more details. Modifications in the forked version ----------------------------------- 01June2011 ---------- Under MSYS, proper path handling for GOBIN and GOROOT when building the toolchain. See the top of env.bash. Added this information section to the top level readme. 21June2011 ---------- Remove PWD variable and do an immediate assignment for QUOTED_GOBIN. Make.inc, Make.clib, and Make.ccmd. Formerly http://codereview.appspot.com/4631057/ 18Sept2011 ---------- Fix make file typo in this file. Added STRACE check in Make.clib. The STRACE flag enables pre-pending of PWD to the name of each source file being compiled-for stack trace purposes. To enable the feature set the flag as follows: $ STRACE=1 ./all.bash 10Nov2011 --------- Removed the dry run compile switch; there's already a builtin -e switch that removes the compile error limit.
