Description Dennis Björklund 2001-08-12 05:18:06 EDT
The comments in files like ~/.bashrc and ~/bash_profile could need some
extra love. A good ting would be to add a line saying when the file
will be used. As it is now, ~/,bashrc is read in every time you start bash
and ~/.bash_profile is read in when you login (that's my understanding of
it at least).

A nice help for the user (me) is to add this information as a comment to
these files.

bashrc lives in setup these days, reassigning
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-13 00:38:32 EDT
Not the /etc/skel ones that go in ~. :)
