String manipulation in Go

Basic Operations

  • Get char array of a String

greeting := "Comment allez-vous"
greeingCharacterArr := []rune(greeting)
  • Get a char at the specific index

fmt.Printf("%c", greeting[5])

Result: n

Without the character formatter, the result would be the Unicode decimal code E.g.

Result: 110
  • Get string length

  • Substrings


func substring(s string, beginIndex int) string {
 return s[beginIndex:]

func substring2(s string, beginIndex int, endIndex int) string {
 return s[beginIndex:endIndex]

  • String to Integer
testN,_ := strconv.Atoi("1234") 
testN += 1 

strconv package

Sorting and Searching Strings in Golang

The sort package in Go has some very useful methods for sorting and searching slices and strings.

The sort.StringSlice attaches the methods of Interface to []string, sorting in increasing order. https://golang.org/pkg/sort/#StringSlice


package main
import ( "fmt" "sort")
func main() { 
    countries := sort.StringSlice{"USA", "India", "South africa", "Libya"}
    n := countries.Search( "USA")
    fmt.Println(""Result: ", n, countries[n])

Result: 3 USA
