Go compiles the EXE executable to remove the CMD window at run time

         Recently, I started to contact go language again and wrote an EXE executable program. However, such a console window will appear every time I execute it, and there is no content yet. It’s not elegant, of course.

We can solve this problem by setting compilation parameters in go build

go build -ldflags "-s -w -H=windowsgui"

-s Omit the symbol table and debug information
-w Omit the DWARF symbol table Omit the DWARF symbol table
-H windowsgui does not print messages to the console (On Windows, -H windowsgui writes a "GUI binary" instead of a "console binary."), so there is no cmd window

In this way, the EXE program generated by go compilation can run in the background.
