Override Local Changes with Remote Git Repository - Git Pull
When working with Git, it's common to encounter situations where you have made changes to your local repository that conflict with the changes made in the remote repository. In these cases, you may need to override your local changes with the remote repository. This can be accomplished using the
git pull command.
What is Git Pull?
Git pull is a command used to update your local repository with changes from a remote repository. It combines the
git fetch command, which retrieves the changes from the remote repository, with the
git merge command, which applies the changes to your local repository.
