What is Patch and what is it for?

What is Patch and what is it for?

Patch is an English word and its translation is patch.

It is basically meant to correct software errors and generate modifications to remedy some problem or at times to improve something.

You know when we run dough on a whole bumpy wall? So, Patch is the mass rush of the technological world, a twig smash! In addition to the experts’ recommendations, there is a real need to keep systems up-to-date in their latest versions, and when an episode arises that requires urgent updates, they use the Patch process.

While not the best solution, it is much faster and cheaper than launching new versions of your program. Unfortunately, it may not all turn out as expected, as there have been observations that in various circumstances some have brought other flaws.

For example, they activated other bugs, disrupted other features, and disabled modifications. That is, the cheap can get expensive!

Taking advantage of this, I made a quick video about updating the Patchs and would like to know your opinion and experience about it!
