strings.Fields() Function in Golang is used to splits the given string around each instance of one or more consecutive white space characters, as defined by unicode.IsSpace, returning a slice of substrings of str or an empty slice if str contains only white space.

Syntax:

func Fields(str string) []string

Returns: A slice of substrings of str or an empty slice if str contains only white space.

Example 1:




// Golang program to illustrate the
// strings.Fields() Function
package main
    
import (
    "fmt"
    "strings"
)
    
func main() {   
               
    // String s is split on the basis of white spaces
    // and store in a string array
    s := "GeeksforGeeks is a computer science portal !"
    v := strings.Fields(s)
    fmt.Println(v)     
       
    // Another example by passing the string as argument
    // directly to the Fields() function
    v = strings.Fields("I am a software developer, I love coding")
    fmt.Println(v)
}


Output:

[GeeksforGeeks is a computer science portal !]
[I am a software developer, I love coding]

Example 2:




// Golang program to illustrate the
// strings.Fields() Function
package main
  
import (
    "fmt"
    "strings"
)
  
func main() {
  
    // Fields function also splits the string
    // on the basis of white spaces and tabs
    s := strings.Fields(" I \t love \n to \n code \n all \t day.")
    fmt.Println(s)
  
    // Splits into 5 words which have
    // newline character in between
    s = strings.Fields("I\nam\nlearning\nGo\nlanguage")
    fmt.Println(s)
}


Output:

[I love to code all day.]
[I am learning Go language]
