Has anyone got an idea if there is any inbuilt functionality in Go for converting from any one of the numeric types to its binary number form.
For example, if
123 was the input, the string
"1111011" would be the output.
strconv package has
FormatInt, which accepts an
int64 and lets you specify the base.
n := int64(123) fmt.Println(strconv.FormatInt(n, 2)) // 1111011
func FormatInt(i int64, base int) string
FormatInt returns the string representation of i in the given base, for 2 <= base <= 36. The result uses the lower-case letters ‘a’ to ‘z’ for digit values >= 10.
