well, here's my .bash_profile
Code:
 
# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
        . ~/.bashrc
fi
 
# User specific environment and startup programs
 
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin
BASH_ENV=$HOME/.bashrc
USERNAME="root"
 
export USERNAME BASH_ENV PATH
and here's my .bashrc
Code:
# User Variables
EDITOR=vim
PAGER=most
MANEDITOR=$EDITOR
MANPAGER=$PAGER
 
export EDITOR PAGER MANEDITOR MANPAGER
 
# Aliases
alias ll='ls -lh --color=auto'
alias rm='rm -i'
alias cp='cp -i'
alias mv='mv -i'
 
# CLI Look
export PS1='[\T][\u:\w]# '
