What exactly is source control?
So I'm using Visual Studio 2012, and whenever I create a new project I always leave out the "Add to source control" option, mainly because I don't what it is, what it's purpose is, or if it would be beneficial to me to use it.
I'm developing a rather large library on my own. I plan on making it open source. Is this what source control is for? Reading up online did not help me unfortunately, I'm still desperately confused. Is source control the same as version control too, by the way?
Some clarification would be greatly appreciated.
