git fetch vs pull (need full merge syntax)
So I've read plenty of answers on this already, saying that pull = fetch + merge. But I'm not totally convinced. This morning instead of doing a "git pull" to update my code with everyone's changes, I did "git fetch," and then ran "git merge" which resulted in a bunch of errors. Actually, "git merge" didn't work on its own. I'm on the origin/develop branch, so I did "git merge origin develop" and it gave me several errors (which I didn't save, unfortunately).
So, what is the EXACT syntax I should've used?
My setup is: $ git remote show origin * remote origin Fetch URL: ssh://repo.xxx/project.git Push URL: ssh://repo.xxx/project.git HEAD branch: master Remote branches: test tracked test2 tracked Local r
