Golang : Get path name to current directory or folder



Tags : golang current-directory

Problem :

You need to get the path name of the current directory where the executable is residing. How to do that in Golang?

Solution :

Use the os.Getwd() function.

For example :

 package main

 import (
 "fmt"
 "os"
 "strings"
 )

 func main() {
 dir, _ := os.Getwd()
 fmt.Println(strings.Replace(dir, " ", "\\ ", -1))
 }

UPDATE : This is similar to the Linux/Unix command pwd -- return working directory name.
