If I have main function:

var a = "foo"


func modify(s string) error {
  s = "bar"

will the result be "foo" or "bar"?

    None. It won't compile because neither 'foo' nor 'bar' is a single character. But let's say you used double quotes instead.

    In Golang, arguments are passed by value (they are copied to the new place in memory - stack or heap), and it does not matter whether it is a private or a public method or arbitrary function. The new instance is modified. The result of your example will be "foo".

    In order to modify variable lying outside of the function, you have to explicitly pass the pointer pointing to such variable.

    func modify(s *string) {
      *s = "bar"
    var a = "foo"
    println(a) // will print "bar"

    In this case pointer itself is passed by values (it is copied) but its value (the address of a) still points to the same variable. So the a can by modified through the pointer.
