Package ioutil implements some I/O utility functions.
In the call graph viewer below, each node is a function belonging to this package and its children are the functions it calls—perhaps dynamically.
The root nodes are the entry points of the package: functions that may be called from outside the package. There may be non-exported or anonymous functions among them if they are called dynamically from another package.
Click a node to visit that function's source code.
From there you can visit its callers by
clicking its declaring
Functions may be omitted if they were determined to be unreachable in the particular programs or tests that were analyzed.
Discard is an io.Writer on which all Write calls succeed without doing anything.
func NopCloser(r io.Reader) io.ReadCloser
NopCloser returns a ReadCloser with a no-op Close method wrapping the provided Reader r.
ReadAll reads from r until an error or EOF and returns the data it read. A successful call returns err == nil, not err == EOF. Because ReadAll is defined to read from src until EOF, it does not treat an EOF from Read as an error to be reported.
Go is a general-purpose language designed with systems programming in mind.
ReadDir reads the directory named by dirname and returns a list of directory entries sorted by filename.
ReadFile reads the file named by filename and returns the contents. A successful call returns err == nil, not err == EOF. Because ReadFile reads the whole file, it does not treat an EOF from Read as an error to be reported.
File contents: Hello, Gophers!
TempDir creates a new temporary directory in the directory dir with a name beginning with prefix and returns the path of the new directory. If dir is the empty string, TempDir uses the default directory for temporary files (see os.TempDir). Multiple programs calling TempDir simultaneously will not choose the same directory. It is the caller's responsibility to remove the directory when no longer needed.
TempFile creates a new temporary file in the directory dir with a name beginning with prefix, opens the file for reading and writing, and returns the resulting *os.File. If dir is the empty string, TempFile uses the default directory for temporary files (see os.TempDir). Multiple programs calling TempFile simultaneously will not choose the same file. The caller can use f.Name() to find the pathname of the file. It is the caller's responsibility to remove the file when no longer needed.
WriteFile writes data to a file named by filename. If the file does not exist, WriteFile creates it with permissions perm; otherwise WriteFile truncates it before writing.
