I keep finding suggestions to put things in my .bashrc or .bash_profile files, located conveniently in my home directory. Problem is, neither of them are there.
And yes, I did ls -a, I'm not THAT much of a newbie.... I've got .bash_history, and .kderc, and other such goodies, but not those two bash config files.
Is this an oddity of Slackware (ie they are stored somewhere else) or do they simply not exist until I create them? If I do create them, what should they contain? Are they shell scripts? Do I make them executable?
Thanks for any help!
