NAME

       go - tool for managing Go source code

SYNOPSIS

       go clean [-i] [-r] [-n] [-x] [ packages ]

DESCRIPTION

       Clean  removes  object  files from package source directories.  The go command builds most
       objects in a temporary directory, so go clean is mainly concerned with object  files  left
       by other tools or by manual invocations of go build.

       Specifically,  clean  removes  the  following  files  from  each of the source directories
       corresponding to the import paths:

       _obj/  old object directory, left from Makefiles

       _test/ old test directory, left from Makefiles

       _testmain.go
              old gotest file, left from Makefiles

       test.out
              old test log, left from Makefiles

       build.out
              old test log, left from Makefiles

       *.[568ao]
              object files, left from Makefiles

       DIR(.exe)
              from go build

       DIR.test(.exe)
              from go test -c

       MAINFILE(.exe)
              from go build MAINFILE.go

       In the list, DIR represents the final path element of the directory, and MAINFILE  is  the
       base  name  of  any Go source file in the directory that is not included when building the
       package.

OPTIONS

       -i     The -i flag causes clean to remove the corresponding installed  archive  or  binary
              (what 'go install' would create).

       -n     The -n flag causes clean to print the remove commands it would execute, but not run
              them.

       -r     The -r flag causes clean to be applied recursively to all the dependencies  of  the
              packages named by the import paths.

       -x     The -x flag causes clean to print remove commands as it executes them.

       For more about specifying packages, see go-packages(7).
