It is exactly as the error message says. I expects the word package. Remove run in front of package.
I dont think “run” was there before. I think the action buttons did something. when i remove it, will it come back again ?
I removed “run”, did “Run go” button, then got : go run: no go files listed. I am in the Go folder where I have my .go source files. it doesnt see my .go files.
go run expects a target package to be compiled and executed:
usage: go run [build flags] [-exec xprog] package [arguments...]
Should i use “run go .” , “run go main.go” , “./” ?
Let’s say you have two files in package
other.go, then you should execute
go run main.go other.go, but
go run . will work too. Take a look at the go command tools documentation for more details.
Tried . , main.go, other.go and all i get is “system cant find the file”. maybe ill just use the terminal and the code-runner extension and forget the action buttons for now
