Golang : Convert source code to assembly language

If you ever have the urge to convert your Golang source code to assembly language, check out this online tool :


One draw back about http://go.godbolt.org/ is that it cannot disassemble third-parties packges (such as those in the import block ).

To get full assembly source code from your Golang code, use this command go build -gcflags -S

For example :

 package main

 import "fmt"

 func main() {

 fmt.Println("Hello World!");


go build -gcflags -S hello.go

will produce :
