Basic data types for the golang learning notes series

Basic data types

In the go language, data types are used to declare functions and variables.

Data types appear to divide data into data of different memory sizes. When programming, large data is needed to apply for large memory. When small data is needed, small memory is needed to make full use of space.

The go language has the following data by category:

Boolean typeBoolean values can only be constant true or false. A simple example: var flag=true
Number typeNumber types include integer int, floating-point float32, and floating-point float64; Complex numbers are also supported. (Note: 0 or non-0 cannot be used to represent conditional judgment)
String typeA string is a sequence of characters connected by a fixed length of characters. The go language strings are connected by a single byte, and the go language strings use utf8 encoding to identify unicode text.
Derived TypesDerived types include pointer type, array type, slice type, struct type, channel type, interface type, map type, and so on.

Integer type

The go language also has architecture-based types, such as int, uint, and uintptr.

uint8Unsigned 8-bit integers (0 to 255)
uint16Unsigned 16-bit integers (0 to 65535)
uint32Unsigned 32-bit integer (0 to 429467295)
uint64Unsigned 64-bit integer (0 to 18446744073709551616)
int8Signed 8-bit integers (-128 to 127)
int16Signed 16-bit integers (-32768 to 32767)
int32Signed 32-bit integer (-2147483648 to 2147483647)
int64Signed 64-bit integer (-9223372036854775808 to 9223372036854775807)

Binary Interconversion

import "fmt"

func main() {

	//Decimal number
	a := 10

	fmt.Printf("a Decimal representation of a: %d\n", a)
	fmt.Printf("a Binary representation a: %b\n", a)
	fmt.Printf("a Octal representation of a: %o\n", a)
	fmt.Printf("a Hexadecimal representation of a: %x\n", a)

	//Define an octal number starting with 0
	b := 077

	fmt.Printf("b Decimal representation of a: %d\n", b)
	fmt.Printf("b Binary representation a: %b\n", b)
	fmt.Printf("b Octal representation of a: %o\n", b)

String type

In the go language, strings are created with double quotes''or back quotes. Double quotation marks are used to create resolvable strings that support escape, but cannot be used to reference multiple lines. Inverse quotation marks are used to create native strings and can consist of multiple lines, but escape is not supported and can contain all characters except inverted quotation marks. Double quotation marks are most commonly used to create parsable strings, while reverse quotation marks are used to create native strings for writing multiple lines of messages, HTML, and regular expressions.

String Stitching

package main

import (

func main() {

	//Single-line string supports escape
	a := "hello world"

	//Escape is not supported for multi-line strings
	b := `
	fmt.Printf("a: %v\n", a)
	fmt.Printf("b: %v\n", b)

	//String Stitching
	s1 := "hello"
	s2 := "world"
	//1. Plus Stitching
	res1 := s1 + " " + s2
	fmt.Printf("s: %v\n", res1)

	//2. String Formatting Sprintf
	res2 := fmt.Sprintf("%s %s", s1, s2)
	fmt.Printf("res2: %v\n", res2)

		join It calculates the length of a stitched string based on an array of strings, then requests memory of the corresponding size to fill in each character.
		This is efficient if you already have an array, but it's expensive to construct if you don't already have one.
	res3 := strings.Join([]string{s1, s2}, " ") //The first parameter is an array of strings, and the second parameter is a connector
	fmt.Printf("res3: %v\n", res3)

		This is ideal for variable strings, for optimizing memory growth, and for predicting string length, for setting capacity using the buffer.Grow() interface
		This is also written directly to the buffer, so it is more efficient
	var buffer bytes.Buffer
	fmt.Printf("buffer.String(): %v\n", buffer.String())


Escape Character

go language strings Common escape characters include carriage return, line break, single and double quotation marks, tabs, and so on

escape characterMeaning
\rCarriage Return Symbol
\nLine Break
\tTab (tab key, or four spaces)
\'Single quotation mark
\"Double Quotes

Slicing operation

//Slicing operation
	s := "I am a student."
	m, n := 2, 4

	fmt.Printf("s[m:n]: %v\n", s[m:n]) //Gets the value of the string s index position from m to n-1
	fmt.Printf("s[:n]: %v\n", s[:n])   //Gets the value of the string s index position from 0 to n-1
	fmt.Printf("s[m:]: %v\n", s[m:])   //Gets the value of the string s index position from m to len(s)-1
	fmt.Printf("s[:]: %v\n", s[:])     //Get string s
	fmt.Printf("s[m]: %v\n", s[m])     //Gets the ascii value of the character at the position m of the string s index

Some common methods of strings

len(s)Gets the length of the string s
+or fmt.SprintfSplit String
strings.Split(s,seq)Separating characters s with seq separator
strings.Contains(s,subs)Query string s for substring subs
strings.HasPrefix(s,prefix)/strings.HasSuffix(s,suffix)Determines whether the prefix/suffix is the specified string
strings.Index(s,subs)/strings.LastIndex(s,subs)The index position of the first (last) occurrence of the query substring subs in s, or -1 if none
strings.join(s_arr,seq)String arrays are stitched together into a string using seq
//Split String
	fmt.Printf("strings.Split(s, \" \"): %v\n", strings.Split(s, " "))

	//Query whether a string contains the specified string
	fmt.Printf("strings.Contains(s, \"student\"): %v\n", strings.Contains(s, "student"))

	//Determines whether the prefix is a specified string
	fmt.Printf("strings.HasPrefix(s, \"hello\"): %v\n", strings.HasPrefix(s, "hello"))

	//Determines whether a suffix is a specified string
	fmt.Printf("strings.HasSuffix(s, \"student.\"): %v\n", strings.HasSuffix(s, "student."))

	//Finds the index position for the first occurrence of a specified string
	fmt.Printf("strings.Index(s, \"a\"): %v\n", strings.Index(s, "aaa"))

	//Finds the index position for the last occurrence of a specified string
	fmt.Printf("strings.LastIndex(s, \"a\"): %v\n", strings.LastIndex(s, "a"))

	//Stitching String Array
	fmt.Printf("strings.Join([]string{\"i\", \"am\", \"a\", \"student.\"}, \" \"): %v\n", strings.Join([]string{"i", "am", "a", "student."}, " "))

Run Results

strings.Split(s, " "): [I am a student.]
strings.Contains(s, "student"): true
strings.HasPrefix(s, "hello"): false
strings.HasSuffix(s, "student."): true
strings.Index(s, "a"): -1
strings.LastIndex(s, "a"): 5
strings.Join([]string{"i", "am", "a", "student."}, " "): i am a student.
