I researched the file library and finally found a way to append content to the end of a file using the Go language

The two main functions:

func (f *File) Seek(offset int64, whence int) (ret int64, err error)
func (f *File) WriteAt(b []byte, off int64) (n int, err error)

Seek() Look up the offset at the end of the file

WriteAt() Write from the offset

Here are some examples:

// fileName: The file name ( With the full path )
// content:  What is written 
func appendToFile(fileName string, content string) error {
  //  Open the file in write-only mode 
  f, err := os.OpenFile(fileName, os.O_WRONLY, 0644)
  if err != nil {
   fmt.Println("cacheFileList.yml file create failed. err: " + err.Error())
  } else {
   //  Find the offset at the end of the file 
   n, _ := f.Seek(0, os.SEEK_END)
   //  Write from the offset at the end 
   _, err = f.WriteAt([]byte(content), n)
defer f.Close()  
return err}
