I am trying to wrap a C library in Golang. I am trying to call a C function in an already compiled library. I have both a .a file and a .so library file.

Where do I need to place the library files and how do i tell cgo that I am using these libraries?

I am rather a novice when it comes to C. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'll explain it with this sample:

    First build libhello.a using ./libs/m.c:

    #include <stdint.h> 
    extern uint64_t Add(uint64_t a, uint64_t b) {
        return a + b;

    For this test sample libhello.a is inside ./libs/ :


    Then go build this m.go working sample:

    package main
    //#cgo LDFLAGS: -L${SRCDIR}/libs -lhello
    //#include <stdint.h>
    //extern uint64_t Add(uint64_t a, uint64_t b);
    import "C"
    import (
    func main() {
        fmt.Println(C.Add(C.uint64_t(10), C.uint64_t(20))) // 30



    When the cgo directives are parsed, any occurrence of the string ${SRCDIR} will be replaced by the absolute path to the directory containing the source file. This allows pre-compiled static libraries to be included in the package directory and linked properly. For example if package foo is in the directory /go/src/foo:

    // #cgo LDFLAGS: -L${SRCDIR}/libs -lfoo

    Will be expanded to:

    // #cgo LDFLAGS: -L/go/src/foo/libs -lfoo
