Check the notes for Class meeting 4-it talks about it there, if that helps any...and i remember they had us go in and add a line into each of those two files that says ".profile was read" or ".shrc was read" and then each time the file was read that line would print...so you can try going back in and doing that again and see when each one is read. good luck :)
: Really sorry to use the 2704 board to post a 2204 question, but i reckon there are quite a few of us taking the 2 together. My question is:
: What is the difference between ~/.profile and ~/.shrc ?
: Bowman wasn't very clear in his answer in the lab, so i wanted to verify this. Which is run at what time?
: Thanks for your input, and once again, I apologize for posting a topic irrelevant to the course.
