Finding the largest element from the array in Golang

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will create an array of integers and find the largest element from the array. After that print the result on the console screen.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to find the largest elements from the array is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

Golang code to find the largest element from the array

```// Golang program to find the largest elements
// from the array

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
var large int = 0
var arr [5]int

arr[0] = 64
arr[1] = 34
arr[2] = 77
arr[3] = 43
arr[4] = 21

large = arr[0]
for i := 1; i <= 4; i++ {
if large < arr[i] {
large = arr[i]
}
}

fmt.Println("Largest element is: ", large)
}
```

Output:

```Largest element is:  77
```

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 and initialized an array of integers. After that, we found the largest element from the array and printed the result on the console screen.
