When and how bash executes startup files.
For Login shells (subject to the -noprofile option): On logging in: If `/etc/profile' exists, then source it. If `~/.bash_profile' exists, then source it, else if `~/.bash_login' exists, then source it, else if `~/. profile' exists, then source it. On logging out: If `~/.bash_logout' exists, source it. For non-login interactive shells (subject to the -norc and -rcfile options): On starting up: If `~/.bashrc' exists, then source it.
For non-interactive shells: On starting up: If the environment variable ENV is non-null, expand the variable and source the file named by the value. If Bash is not started in Posix mode, it looks for BASH_ENV before ENV.
