bash history


I'm trying to unset bash history

Code:
set +o history
However this variable is reset whenever I call up xterm.

I've tried putting this into /home/me/.bash_profile and /etc/profile as well. What should I do to make this permanent?

Thanks

If I put
Code:
set +o history
in .bashrc, history is still active. However if I use
Code:
set HISTFILE=0
, bash history is disabled. I wonder why the former doesn't work...
