 func SayHelloWorld(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
 html := "Hello"
 html = html + " World"

 w.Write([]byte(html))
 }

 func main() {
 mux := http.NewServeMux()
 mux.HandleFunc("/", SayHelloWorld)

  URISegments := strings.Split(r.URL.Path, "/")
  w.Write([]byte(URISegments[1]))
 }

 func main() {
