Golang : Get file permission

Get a file permission in Go is easy. In this tutorial, we will see how to read a file permission and display the permission. This example will use the http://golang.org/pkg/os/#File.Stat function.


 package main

 import (

 func main() {
 file := "file.txt"
 info,_ := os.Stat(file)
 mode := info.Mode()

 fmt.Println(file, "mode is " ,  mode)


Test this code out and see the output of file permission.
You should see something similar to this example output :

> go run getfilepermission.go

 file.txt mode is  -rw-rw-r--
