Golang : convert int to string

Tags : golang strconv convert-to-string

While working on previous tutorial on displaying struct values in string format with a method. I stumbled upon an age old question many programmers will eventually face one day. How to convert type integer to string.

In Go, it is pretty simple. Just use strconv.Itoa() function to convert integer to string.

Here is the source code example :

 package main

 import (

 func main() {

 age := 12

 // will NOT display properly

 // convert int to string
 agestr := strconv.Itoa(age)

 // will display properly
