3.2 Bash configuration

I modify shell startup scripts to my taste across the system:

     /etc/bash.bashrc        Replace with private one
     /etc/profile            Keep distribution copy ( \w -> \W)
     /etc/skel/.bashrc       Replace with private copy
     /etc/skel/.profile      Replace with private copy
     /etc/skel/.bash_profile Replace with private copy
     ~/.bashrc               Replace with private copy for all accounts
     ~/.profile              Replace with private copy for all accounts
     ~/.bash_profile         Replace with private copy for all accounts

See details in my example scripts. I like a transparent system, so I set umask to 002 or 022.

PATH is set by the following configuration files in this order:

     /etc/login.defs  - before the shell sets PATH
     /etc/profile     (may call /etc/bash.bashrc)
     ~/.bash_profile  (may call ~/.bashrc)
