Golang program to change the current working directory using os.Chdir() function

Here, we are going to learn how to change the current working directory using os.Chdir() function in Golang (Go Language)?
Submitted by Nidhi, on April 20, 2021

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will get the current working directory using os.Getwd() function and then change the current working directory using os.Chdir() function.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to change the current working directory using os.Chdir() function is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on the ubuntu 18.04 operating system successfully.

// Golang program to change the current working directory
// using os.Chdir() function

package main

import "fmt"
import "os"

func main() {
	currentDir, err := os.Getwd()
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	} else {
		fmt.Println("Current working directory: ", currentDir)
	}

	os.Chdir("/home/")

	currentDir, err = os.Getwd()
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	} else {
		fmt.Println("Current working directory: ", currentDir)
	}
}

Output:

Current working directory:  /home/arvind/Downloads
Current working directory:  /home

Explanation:

In the above program, we declare the package main. The main package is used to tell the Go language compiler that the package must be compiled and produced the executable file. Here, we imported the "fmt" package to use the Printf() function and we also imported the "os" package to use the Getwd(), Chdir() functions.

In the main() function, we got the current working directory using user.Getwd() function and then the current directory using os.Chdir() function. After that, we printed the current directory again on the console screen.
