GIT Branch Clarification
I have a few files in the master branch which have been committed.
Then I create another branch and switch to that branch as well.
Now in that another branch I modify the files which are also present in the master branch.
But still I have not committed the changes on the other branch.
If I try to switch to the master branch it lets me to switch carrying all changes I have made on the other branch.
GIT should not allow me to switch to master branch until I commit the changes in the other branch right?
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
