How to use strconv.Quote() Function in Golang?

Go language provides inbuilt support to implement conversions to and from string representations of basic data types by strconv Package. This package provides a Quote() function which is used to find a double-quoted Go string literal representing str and the returned string uses Go escape sequences (\t, \n, \xFF, \u0100) to control characters and non-printable characters defined by IsPrint. To access Quote() function you need to import strconv Package in your program.

Syntax:

func Quote(str string) string

Parameter: This function takes one parameter of string type, i.e., str.

Return Value: This function returns a double-quoted Go string literal which represents str.
