Powerful Command-Line Applications in Go (Pragmatic Programmer)
Monday, 24 January 2022

This book looks at writing Go command-line tools to automate tasks, analyze data, parse logs, talk to network services, or address other systems requirements. Ricardo Gerardi shows how to create command-line tools that work with files, connect to services, and even manage external processes, all while using tests and benchmarks to ensure your programs are fast and correct.


The book has practical examples showing how to develop efficient tools by applying Go's rich standard library, its built-in support for concurrency, and its expressive syntax. It also shows how to use Go's integrated testing capabilities to automatically test your tools, ensuring they work reliably even across code refactoring.
