$GOPATH which tells Go where to install packages and where the source codes to your project and its dependencies live. A lot of people might set

Over the last couple months I've been slowly working on rewriting RiveScript in yet another programming language: Google's Go language! It's also my first project in Go, which is what tends to be the case (rewriting RiveScript in Java and Python were my first projects in those languages, too).
But this is the last time I'm going to be rewriting RiveScript from scratch.
