Setting $GOPATH environment variable for Unix/Linux and Windows

Go relies on one important environment variable called $GOPATH to determine where is the workspace located in your computer. To setup the $GOPATH environment variable in your computer, use this command :

export GOPATH=/home/userid/goworkspace

now, of couse the /home/userid/goworkspace is for my own and you have to set the correct path for your own computer.

For Windows, use the SET command

set GOPATH=c:\goworkspace

again, the c:\goworkspace is just an example. Change it according to your own preference.
