In Go programming language, fmt.Printf() function is an inbuilt function of fmt package, it is used to format according to a format specifier and writes to standard output.

To print the type of a variable using the fmt.Printf() function – we use %T format verb.

func main() {
	x := 10
	fmt.Printf("%T", x)

// example of %T format verb

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
	// Declaring some variable with the values
	a := 10
	b := 123.45
	c := "Hello, world!"
	d := []int{10, 20, 30}

	// Printing types & values of the variables
	fmt.Printf("%T, %v\n", a, a)
	fmt.Printf("%T, %v\n", b, b)
	fmt.Printf("%T, %v\n", c, c)
	fmt.Printf("%T, %v\n", d, d)


int, 10
float64, 123.45
string, Hello, world!
[]int, [10 20 30]
