Basic types

suggest change

Go supports all the basic types that you would expect from a statically typed language:

type literal
bool true, false
int, int8, uint8, int16, uint16, int32, uint32, int64, uint64 38
float64, float32 (floating-point numbers) 23.5, 2e-12
byte (alias of uint8, a char) 'a'
rune (alias of int32, a unicode character) 'p'
string "foo", `bar`
constants const a = 8
structs type Foo struct {}
slice (variable-sized vector) []int = {1, -3, 4}
array (fixed-size vector) [2]int = {2, -3}
map (known as dictionary or hash table in other languages) map[string]int
