Documentation

https://golang.org/cmd/cgo/#hdr-Go_references_to_C

A C function may be declared in the Go file with a parameter type of the special name _GoString_. This function may be called with an ordinary Go string value. The string length, and a pointer to the string contents, may be accessed by calling the C functions

size_t _GoStringLen(_GoString_ s);
const char *_GoStringPtr(_GoString_ s);

These functions are only available in the preamble, not in other C files. The C code must not modify the contents of the pointer returned by _GoStringPtr. Note that the string contents may not have a trailing NUL byte.
