Golang : How to get quoted string into another string?

Problem :

You have a string and you want to join it with another string which is quoted. Somehow, you feel uncomfortable to escape the quotes in the string. So, what's the alternative solution?

Solution :

Use strconv.AppendQuote() function. For example :

 package main

 import (

 func main() {

  //func AppendQuote(dst []byte, s string) []byte

  dst := []byte("A quoted string looks like : ")

  fmt.Println("Before : ", string(dst))

  b := strconv.AppendQuote(dst, "this")

  fmt.Println("After : ", string(b))


Output :

Before : A quoted string looks like :

After : A quoted string looks like : "this"
