Reproducible Builds via Go Modules
In order to provide stable and reproducible builds, Go modules are used to pin the versions of source code dependencies to specific versions.
Go has included support for versioned modules as proposed here since 1.11. The initial prototype vgo was announced in February 2018. In July 2018, versioned modules landed in the main Go repository. They are used by default by the go toolchain starting from version 1.13 .

Using Go Modules - go.dev
To install the command-line tool:
$ go build -o /usr/local/bin/net -i github.com/dreadl0ck/netcap/cmd
To cross compile for other architectures, set the GOARCH and GOOS environment variables. For example to cross compile a binary for linux amd64:
$ GOARCH=amd64 GOOS=linux go build -o bin/net -i github.com/dreadl0ck/netcap/cmd
On macOS, you can install the netcap command-line tool with Homebrew:
$ brew tap dreadl0ck/formulas
$ brew install netcap
Netcap uses the zeus build system, it can be found on GitHub along with installation instructions:
