Golang: convert slices into map

Is there an easy/simple means of converting a slice into a map in Golang? Like converting an array into hash in perl is easy to do with simple assignment like %hash = @array this above will convert all the elements in the array into a hash, with keys being even-numbered index elements while the values will be odd-numbered index elements of the array.

In my Go code, I have slices of string and would like to convert it into a map. I am wondering if there is a Go’s library code to do this.

func main() {
  var elements []string
  var elementMap map[string]string
  elements = []string{"abc", "def", "fgi", "adi"}
}

elements slice should be converted into map of strings, elementMap .

thanks
