script or a startup file to test this state.
The following paragraphs describe how bash executes its
startup files. If any of the files exist but cannot be
read, bash reports an error. Tildes are expanded in file
names as described below under Tilde Expansion in the
When bash is invoked as an interactive login shell, or as
a non-interactive shell with the --login option, it first
reads and executes commands from the file /etc/profile, if
that file exists. After reading that file, it looks for
~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile, in that
