Project Description

Developers often come across bugs in applications and may wonder how long they've been present in the codebase. It can be challenging to identify the initial commit that introduced the bug, especially in codebases with many commits.

This project aims to showcase how the git bisect command can be used to locate the commit that first introduced the bug. Additionally, we'll illustrate how to automate the git bisect process using a shell script to minimize manual effort.
