go lang

Yesterday I decided to learn a new programming language. My choice was the programming language “go“. The reason is the announcement that this language should be included in the gcc. So I will report the next time a little bit about my experiences.

The installation was completed thanks to a good description in 15 minutes. One problem I had when compiling. You have the locale set to “en_US” during the compilation:

$ cd $GOROOT/src
$ LANG=en_US ./all.bash

5 minutes later, the “hello world” ran.

In the directory $GOROOT/misc/kate,  a file go.xml can be found for the syntax highlighting in kate. This file must be copied into the directory ~/.kde4/share/apps/katepart/syntax/.
