Involved Source Files Package godebug makes the settings in the $GODEBUG environment variable available to other packages. These settings are often used for compatibility tweaks, when we need to change a default behavior but want to let users opt back in to the original. For example GODEBUG=http2server=0 disables HTTP/2 support in the net/http server. In typical usage, code should declare a Setting as a global and then call Value each time the current setting value is needed: var http2server = godebug.New("http2server") func ServeConn(c net.Conn) { if http2server.Value() == "0" { disallow HTTP/2 ... } ... } Each time a non-default setting causes a change in program behavior, code should call [Setting.IncNonDefault] to increment a counter that can be reported by [runtime/metrics.Read]. Note that counters used with IncNonDefault must be added to various tables in other packages. See the [Setting.IncNonDefault] documentation for details.
Package-Level Type Names (total 4, in which 1 is exported)
/* sort exporteds by: | */
A Setting is a single setting in the $GODEBUG environment variable. IncNonDefault increments the non-default behavior counter associated with the given setting. This counter is exposed in the runtime/metrics value /godebug/non-default-behavior/<name>:events. Note that Value must be called at least once before IncNonDefault. Name returns the name of the setting. String returns a printable form for the setting: name=value. Undocumented reports whether this is an undocumented setting. Value returns the current value for the GODEBUG setting s. Value maintains an internal cache that is synchronized with changes to the $GODEBUG environment variable, making Value efficient to call as frequently as needed. Clients should therefore typically not attempt their own caching of Value's result. *Setting : fmt.Stringer func New(name string) *Setting
Package-Level Functions (total 10, in which 1 is exported)
New returns a new Setting for the $GODEBUG setting with the given name. GODEBUGs meant for use by end users must be listed in ../godebugs/table.go, which is used for generating and checking various documentation. If the name is not listed in that table, New will succeed but calling Value on the returned Setting will panic. To disable that panic for access to an undocumented setting, prefix the name with a #, as in godebug.New("#gofsystrace"). The # is a signal to New but not part of the key used in $GODEBUG.
