Converting an Int to a String

· 71 words · 1 minute read

This is a short example on how to convert an integer number into a string. This is a common use case when printing to screen or working with the number as if it was a string. To do this we use the strconv package and the Itoa function.

package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "strconv"
)

func main() {
    // Will print Number: 1234
    anInt := 1234
    fmt.Println("Number: " + strconv.Itoa(anInt))
}
