What version of Go are you using (go version)?


(stated on about page of )

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?

Whatever the go playground uses. I haven't found a way to exec the go binary to find out, I expect this is intentional.

What did you do?

Find the documentation for os/exec.Cmd.StdoutPipe() and run the example code.
