SYNOPSIS

go mod command [arguments]

DESCRIPTION

Go mod provides access to operations on modules.

Note that support for modules is built into all the go commands, not just 'go mod'. For example, day-to-day adding, removing, upgrading, and downgrading of dependencies should be done using 'go get'. See 'go help modules' for an overview of module functionality.
