     5  // Package plugin implements loading and symbol resolution of Go plugins.
     6  //
     7  // A plugin is a Go main package with exported functions and variables that
     8  // has been built with:
     9  //
    10  //	go build -buildmode=plugin
    11  //
    12  // When a plugin is first opened, the init functions of all packages not
    13  // already part of the program are called. The main function is not run.
    14  // A plugin is only initialized once, and cannot be closed.
    15  //
    16  // Currently plugins are only supported on Linux and macOS.
    17  // Please report any issues.
