About

The unconvert program analyzes Go packages to identify unnecessary type conversions; i.e., expressions T(x) where x already has type T.

Install

go install github.com/mdempsky/unconvert@latest

Usage

$ unconvert -v bytes fmt
GOROOT/src/bytes/reader.go:117:14: unnecessary conversion
                abs = int64(r.i) + offset
                           ^
GOROOT/src/fmt/print.go:411:21: unnecessary conversion
        p.fmt.integer(int64(v), 16, unsigned, udigits)
                           ^

Flags

Using the -v flag, unconvert will also print the source line and a caret to indicate the unnecessary conversion's position therein.

Using the -apply flag, unconvert will rewrite the Go source files without the unnecessary type conversions.

Using the -all flag, unconvert will analyze the Go packages under all possible GOOS/GOARCH combinations, and only identify conversions that are unnecessary in all cases.

E.g., syscall.Timespec's Sec and Nsec fields are int64 under linux/amd64 but int32 under linux/386. An int64(ts.Sec) conversion that appears in a linux/amd64-only file will be identified as unnecessary, but it will be preserved if it occurs in a file that's compiled for both linux/amd64 and linux/386.
