Shared library in golang

I am trying to create a shared library ( in golang using following command
go build -buildmode c-shared -o test.go where test.go contains below code

package main
import “C”
type person struct {
name string
age int
//export newPerson
func newPerson(name string) *person {
p := person{name: name}
p.age = 42

return &p

func main(){}

It’s giving an error “Go type not supported in export: struct”

Can someone help?


Does this mean that I cannot create a shared library in golang where the library’s function takes any structure as argument?

If Yes then will it be supported in future?
