How to git discard branch without checkout?
I have made some stupid changes on a branch.
I can remove the Branch, no problem.
However I can't do it while on it.
So, I don't want those changes anymore.
If I don't
commit, and I
checkout to my "good branch", the modified references will pass.
I wish NOT that to happen.
How can I properly remove and disregard those changes for good ?
