go - tool for managing Go source code SYNOPSIS
go build [-o output] [ build flags ] [ packages ] DESCRIPTION
Build compiles the packages named by the import paths, along with their dependencies, but it does not install the results. If the arguments are a list of .go files, build treats them as a list of source files specifying a single package. When the command line specifies a single main package, build writes the resulting executable to output. Otherwise build compiles the pack- ages but discards the results, serving only as a check that the packages can be built. The -o flag specifies the output file name. If not specified, the name is packagename.a (for a non-main package) or the base name of the first source file (for a main package). OPTIONS
The build flags are shared by the build, install, run, and test commands: -a force rebuilding of packages that are already up-to-date. -n print the commands but do not run them. -p n the number of builds that can be run in parallel. The default is the number of CPUs available. -v print the names of packages as they are compiled. -work print the name of the temporary work directory and do not delete it when exiting. -x print the commands. -compiler name name of compiler to use, as in runtime.Compiler (gccgo or gc) -gccgoflags 'arg list' arguments to pass on each gccgo compiler/linker invocation -gcflags 'arg list' arguments to pass on each 5g, 6g, or 8g compiler invocation -ldflags 'flag list' arguments to pass on each 5l, 6l, or 8l linker invocation -tags 'tag list' a list of build tags to consider satisfied during the build. See the documentation for the go/build package for more information about build tags. For more about specifying packages, see go-packages(7). For more about where packages and binaries are installed, see go-gopath(1). SEE ALSO

mk-build-deps - build a package satisfying a package's build-dependencies SYNOPSIS
mk-build-deps --help|--version mk-build-deps [options] control file | package name ... DESCRIPTION
Given a package name and/or control file, mk-build-deps will use equivs to generate a binary package which may be installed to satisfy all the build dependencies of the given package. If --build-dep and/or --build-indep are given, then the resulting binary package(s) will depend solely on the Build-Depends/Build-Depends-Indep dependencies, respectively. OPTIONS
-i, --install Install the generated packages and its build-dependencies. -t, --tool When installing the generated package use the specified tool. (default: apt-get --no-install-recommends) -r, --remove Remove the package file after installing it. Ignored if used without the --install switch. -a foo, --arch foo If the source package has architecture-specific build dependencies, produce a package for architecture foo, not for the system architecture. (If the source package does not have architecture-specific build dependencies, the package produced is always for the pseudo-architecture all.) -B, --build-dep Generate a package which only depends on the source package's Build-Depends dependencies. -A, --build-indep Generate a package which only depends on the source package's Build-Depends-Indep dependencies. -h, --help Show a summary of options. -v, --version Show version and copyright information. -s, --root-cmd Use the specified tool to gain root privileges before installing. Ignored if used without the --install switch. AUTHOR
