How to print exit status in golang?

Hi Friends šŸ‘‹,

Welcome To aGuideHub! ā¤ļø

Today, Iā€™m going to show you how to print exit status in golang, well in this tutorial we will use the log.Printf() method to print exit status.

luckily, i have found some exit status code example, here we have to focus log.Printf("Exit Status: %d", status.ExitStatus()) line.

package main

import "os/exec"
import "log"
import "syscall"

func main() {
    cmd := exec.Command("git", "blub")

    if err := cmd.Start(); err != nil {
        log.Fatalf("cmd.Start: %v", err)

    if err := cmd.Wait(); err != nil {
        if exiterr, ok := err.(*exec.ExitError); ok {
            if status, ok := exiterr.Sys().(syscall.WaitStatus); ok {
                log.Printf("Exit Status: %d", status.ExitStatus())
        } else {
            log.Fatalf("cmd.Wait: %v", err)

When we run the above code in the golang compiler, we get an error plus an Exit Status log.

Check the output of the above code example.
