To track the changes and rollback them if necessary, use GitHub, Bitbucket, or GitLab. If you don’t know how to use Git, consider using a GUI client; if this is too much either, use a bunch of local timestamped copies and compare them using Meld or another comparison application.
I want to discourage beginner programmers ("students" for short) from using comments to track changes. Instead of using comments, I suggest them to use one of the three options:
- Git (for the most ambitious students)
- Git + GUI client over it (for students that are not that ambitious)
- Local copies + comparison application (for the least ambitious ones)
I'm not sure that if this is too much either is a correct way to show the jump from the second option to the third. I tried to find usage examples, and there are very few of them.
"if this is too much either"- only 2 real results, 0 trustworthy (e.g., from New York Times or some book).
"if this is too much as well"- 0 results.
And so I think this phrases are wrong. How to fix it? Or may be I should choose the completely different one?
