How to Rename and Move a File in Golang?
In the Go language, you are allowed to rename and move the existing file to a new path with the help of the Rename() method. This method is used to rename and move a file from the old path to the new path.
- If the given new path already exists and it is not in a directory, then this method will replace it. But OS-specific restrictions may apply when the given old path and the new path are in different directories.
- If the given path is incorrect, then it will throw an error of type *LinkError.
- It is defined under the os package so, you have to import os package in your program for accessing Remove() function.
