Graceful Exit in Go Program
* Killing a program immediately sometimes leads to corrupted data or files, which brings unexpected result in your system.
* In Go, you can catch the termination signals and let your program decide the time of exiting.
package main
import (
func main() {
println("Notify the signals ...")
sigs := make(chan os.Signal, 1)
signal.Notify(sigs, os.Interrupt, syscall.SIGTERM)
nsig := <-sigs
println("... Exit with: ", nsig.String())
