go-bindataembed data in a Go program


go-bindata [options] input [input ...]


go-bindata converts any file into manageable Go source code. It is useful for embedding binary data into a Go program. The file data is optionally gzip compressed before being converted to a raw byte slice.
input is an input directory containing the assets to incorporate. If suffixed by /... it will be searched recursively.
The options are as follows:
Do not embed the assets, but provide the embedding API. Contents will still be loaded from disk.
Assets will *not* be GZIP compressed when this flag is specified.
Use a .rodata hack to get rid of unnecessary memcopies. Refer to the documentation to see what implications this carries.
-pkg package

-prefix prefix
