About w32

w32 is a wrapper of windows apis for the Go Programming Language.

It wraps win32 apis to “Go style” to make them easier to use.


  1. Make sure you have a working Go installation and build environment, see this go-nuts post for details: http://groups.google.com/group/golang-nuts/msg/5c87630a84f4fd0c

    Updated versions of the Windows Go build are available here: http://code.google.com/p/gomingw/downloads/list

  2. Create a “gopath” directory if you do not have one yet and set the GOPATH variable accordingly. For example: mkdir -p go-externals/src export GOPATH=${PWD}/go-externals

  3. go get github.com/AllenDang/w32

  4. go install github.com/AllenDang/w32...
