All known file formats using extension .GO

While Go Game in Ishi Format is a popular type of GO-file, we know of 3 different uses of the .GO file extension. Different software may use files with the same extension for different types of data.

Go Source Code File

The. go file extension is used to identify source codes written in the GO programming language. Go is primarily developed by Google to address some of its software problems and to address the complex issues in using C++ language. Public usage of Go began in November of 2009.

GO files contain the source code (textual representation) of functions and programs as written by the programmers. The files are to be compiled first before you can use the program.

There are two compilers that can link GO files, GC and GCCGO. GC or GO Compiler is a standard compiler, while GCCGO (GNU Cross Compilation GO Compiler) is a different implementation with a different focus. Compared to GC, GCCGO is slower in compiling but it supports more powerful optimization access. Programs compiled with GCCGO run 30% faster compared to GC- based.

While we have not verified the apps ourselves yet, our users have suggested three different GO openers which you will find listed below.
