gotype - syntatic and semantic analysis of Go files
gotype [flags] [ path ... ]
The gotype command does syntactic and semantic analysis of Go files and packages like the front-end of a Go compiler. Errors are reported if the analysis fails; otherwise gotype is quiet (unless -v is set). Without a list of paths, gotype reads from standard input, which must provide a single Go source file defining a complete package. If a single path is specified that is a directory, gotype checks the Go files in that directory; they must all belong to the same package. Otherwise, each path must be the filename of Go file belonging to the same package.
-a use all (incl. _test.go) files when processing a directory -ast print AST (forces -seq) -comments parse comments (ignored unless -ast or -trace is provided) -e report all errors (not just the first 10) -seq parse sequentially, rather than in parallel -trace print parse trace (forces -seq) -v verbose mode
To check the files a.go, b.go, and c.go: gotype a.go b.go c.go To check an entire package in the directory dir and print the processed files: gotype -v dir To check an entire package including tests in the local directory: gotype -a . To verify the output of a pipe: echo "package foo" | gotype
