Finding the difference between two times in Golang

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will create two-time objects and find the difference between two-time objects using the Sub() function. After that print the result on the console screen.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to find the difference between the two times is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

Golang code to find the difference between two times

// Golang program to find the difference between two times

package main

import "fmt"
import "time"

func main() {
	time1 := time.Date(2020, 2, 5, 10, 5, 20, 0, time.UTC)
	time2 := time.Date(2020, 2, 5, 13, 10, 30, 0, time.UTC)

	diff := time2.Sub(time1)
	fmt.Printf("Difference of t1 and t2 is: %v", diff)
}

Output:

Difference of t1 and t2 is: 3h5m10s

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 that includes the files of package fmt then we can use a function related to the fmt package.

In the main() function, we created two-time objects time1 and time2 that are initialized using time.Date() function. After that, we subtract time1 from time2 using the Sub() function and print the result on the console screen.
