Bash: Command Line


When Bash is invoked as an interactive login shell 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 order, and reads and executes commands from the first one that exists and is readable. When a login shell exits Bash reads and executes commands from the file  /.bash_logout, if it exists.
