Tags : golang remove-null bytes trim

Problem :

You have input data in slice of bytes and you want to remove the null characters in the data. How to do that ?

Solution : Use the bytes.Trim() function to remove the null characters from your input. Null character in byte format is \x00 and use this example :

 withoutNull = bytes.Trim(withNull, "\x00")
