It seems like a gap in the Go Language Tour that there’s no explanation of how a rune differs from a char in other languages. It wasn’t obvious to me because I’m old and I still think in ASCII.

Or was it explained and I just missed it?

I don’t know enough about lexers and parsers. And recommendations for a general, introductory text?

Just pressed an elevator button and had the door immediately open, full of people. They each thought someone else had hit the button and had been standing in there, not moving.

This really just happened. I am currently running it and I am amazed by it. It is simple, straight forward and rock solid. Big shout-out to
