cmd/go: unexpected output with go doc std #53446
The path to resolution is known, but the work has not been done.
go version go1.19beta1 linux/amd64
Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?
What did you do?
Originally, I was attempting list all standard packages via
go list std. I tried to find documentation
go help listthat confirms the use of "std" as some kind of proxy for listing the standard library. That led me to
go doc std.
What did you expect to see?
I expected to see nothing (as its not a package) , or some kind of magic placeholder, or some kind of invalid package error.
What did you see instead?
What I think I see is the first standard library package in alpha order,
stdis meant to be magic, but if its not, it seems that it would documented in
go help listand clearer usage with
go doc std. I could also just be wrong on its usage (found via some random posts).
