Description : Safe and easy casting from one type to another in Go
Cast is a library to convert between different Go types in a consistent
and easy way.
Cast provides simple functions to easily convert a number to a string, an
interface into a bool, etc. Cast does this intelligently when an obvious
conversion is possible. It doesn’t make any attempts to guess what you
meant; for example, you can only convert a string to an int when it is a
string representation of an int such as “8”.
Cast was developed for use in Hugo (http://gohugo.io/), a website engine
which uses YAML, TOML or JSON for meta data.
Reason for packaging: Needed by Go applications such as
Hugo the static website generator, http://gohugo.io/
To be maintained within the pkg-go-maintainers team.
