This command is extremely useful when you need only one or few commits from one branch in another branch, but don't want or cannot merge.

Let'' say that in your application you use the branch master to deploy to production and develop new code in another branch, say dev. You implement a few features, but realize you need one of them needs to be merged to master soon and cannot wait for you to finish whatever you were developing in the dev branch.

You can use the following git commands:

# Find and copy the commit hash that you want to send to another branch
git log

# change to the branch where this commit is needed
git checkout master

# execute the cherry pick using the hash you copied earlier
git cherry-pick bbb70c579ce1382af60eebacde95c2aef6676abf

If there are any conflicts, resolve them and commit the new code. Done.
