How to Print the Memory Address of a Slice in Go


Using fmt.Printf Function


%p base 16 notation, with leading 0x. The %b, %d, %o, %x and %X verbs also work with pointers, formatting the value exactly as if it were an nteger.

See the following example:

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
  a := []int{1, 2, 3}
  b := a[:]

  fmt.Printf("&a: %p\n", &a)
  fmt.Printf("&b: %p\n", &b)
  fmt.Printf(" a: %p\n", a)
&a: 0xc0000ac018
&b: 0xc0000ac030
 a: 0xc0000ba000
