HEXISTS command in Redis is used to determine if a hash field exists. This can be particularly useful in scenarios where you need to check the existence of a specific key within a hash before performing certain operations, such as updates or deletions, where these operations are only meaningful if the key exists.

HEXISTS in Golang:

HEXISTS. If it exists, it will return
true, otherwise it will return
HEXISTScommand in order to handle any issues that may occur during its execution.

Q: What happens if the field does not exist in the hash?
A: In this situation,
HEXISTS will also return
