Writing TCP scanner in Go

Go is perfect for network applications. Its awesome standard library helps a lot in writing such software. In this article, we’ll write a simple TCP scanner in Go. The whole programm will take less than 50 lines of code. Before we’ll go to practice - a little theory. Of course, the TCP is more complicated than I describe but we need just basics. The TCP handshake is three-way. Firstly, the client sends the syn package which signals the beginning of a communication.

How to send multiple variables via channel in golang?

Channels in golang are referenced type. It means that they are references to a place in the memory. The information can be used to achieve the goal.
