strings.FieldsFunc() Function in Golang With Examples
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 19 Apr, 2020

strings.FieldsFunc() Function in Golang is used to splits the given string str at each run of Unicode code points c satisfying f(c) and returns an array of slices of str.

Syntax:

func FieldsFunc(str string, f func(rune) bool) []string

Here, str is the given string, the rune is a built-in type meant to contain a single Unicode character and f is a user-defined function.

Return: If all code points in str satisfy f(c) or the string is empty, an empty slice is returned.

Note: This function makes no guarantees about the order in which it calls f(c). If f does not return consistent results for a given c, FieldsFunc may crash.



Example 1:




// Golang program to illustrate the
// strings.FieldsFunc() Function
  
package main
  
import (
    "fmt"
    "strings"
    "unicode"
)
  
func main() {
  
    // f is a function which returns true if the
    // c is number and false otherwise
    f := func(c rune) bool {
        return unicode.IsNumber(c)
    }
  
    // FieldsFunc() function splits the string passed
    // on the return values of the function f
    // String will therefore be split when a number
    // is encontered and returns all non-numbers
    fmt.Printf("Fields are: %q\n"
       strings.FieldsFunc("ABC123PQR456XYZ789", f))
}

Output:

Fields are: ["ABC" "PQR" "XYZ"]

Example 2:




// Golang program to illustrate the
// strings.FieldsFunc() Function
package main
  
import (
    "fmt"
    "strings"
    "unicode"
)
  
func main() {
  
    // f is a function which returns true if the
    // c is a white space or a full stop
    // and returns false otherwise
    f := func(c rune) bool {
        return unicode.IsSpace(c) || c == '.'
    }
  
    // We can also pass a string indirectly
    // The string will split when a space or a
    // full stop is encontered and returns all non-numbers
    s := "We are humans. We are social animals."
    fmt.Printf("Fields are: %q\n", strings.FieldsFunc(s, f))
}

Output:

Fields are: ["We" "are" "humans" "We" "are" "social" "animals"]
