Golang : rune literal not terminated error



Tags : golang error rune

Encounter this error message rune literal not terminated while working on a Golang project recently. Took me a while to spot the error and fix it. (Must be sign of old age)

Apparently, the ' symbol in front of the package name io/ioutil

 import (
 "fmt"
 'io/ioutil"  // <----- here
 "encoding/csv"
 "encoding/json"
 )

will cause the Golang compiler to generate rune literal not terminated error message.

To fix, this error... simply change ' to "

 import (
 "fmt"
 "io/ioutil" // <--- see the diff ?
 "encoding/csv"
 "encoding/json"
 )

Golang is still at its infancy stage by the time of writing this and hopefully the compiler will throw out more meaningful error message in future version.
