采用bashshell进行交互操作时，在终端当前用户的home目录下经常可以看到.bashrc, .bash_profile 在/etc/目录下也会看到/etc/bashrc, /etc/profile.
关于.bashrc与.bash_profile的区别，stack上已经有了比较明朗的回答:whats the difference between bashrc bash profile and environment
The following paragraphs describe how bash executes its startup files. If any of the files exist but cannot be read, bash reports an error. Tildes are expanded in file names as described below under Tilde Expansion in the EXPANSION section.
When bash is invoked as an interactive login shell, or as a non-inter‐ active shell with the –login option, it first reads and executes commands from the file /etc/profile, if that file exists. After reading that file, it looks for ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile, in that order, and reads and executes commands from the first one that exists and is readable. The –noprofile option may be used when the shell is started to inhibit this behavior.
如果bash以交互登录或非交互登录模式唤起时，它会先读取并执行/etc/profile(如果存在的话)，然后以先后顺序执行~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, ~/.profile. 如果任何文件不可读，bash都会报错
When a login shell exits, bash reads and executes commands from the files ~/.bash_logout and /etc/bash.bash_logout, if the files exists. When an interactive shell that is not a login shell is started, bash reads and executes commands from ~/.bashrc, if that file exists. This may be inhibited by using the –norc option. The –rcfile file option will force bash to read and execute commands from file instead of ~/.bashrc.
When bash is started non-interactively, to run a shell script, for example, it looks for the variable BASH_ENV in the environment, expands
its value if it appears there, and uses the expanded value as the name
of a file to read and execute. Bash behaves as if the following command were executed:
if [ -n “$BASH_ENV” ]; then . “$BASH_ENV”; fi
but the value of the PATH variable is not used to search for the file name.
If bash is invoked with the name sh, it tries to mimic the startup behavior of historical versions of sh as closely as possible, while conforming to the POSIX standard as well. When invoked as an interac‐tive login shell, or a non-interactive shell with the –login option, it first attempts to read and execute commands from /etc/profile and ~/.profile, in that order. The –noprofile option may be used to inhibit this behavior. When invoked as an interactive shell with the name sh, bash looks for the variable ENV, expands its value if it is defined, and uses the expanded value as the name of a file to read and execute. Since a shell invoked as sh does not attempt to read and execute commands from any other startup files, the –rcfile option has no effect. A non-interactive shell invoked with the name sh does not attempt to read any other startup files. When invoked as sh, bash enters posix mode after the startup files are read.
如果bash以sh命令的方式唤起，它会在遵从POSIX标准的同时，尽可能模拟之前的启动行为. 如果是以交互（或非交互）登录方式唤起，它会先后读取并执行/etc/profile和~/.profile. 如果sh以交互(非登录)方式唤起bash,它会寻找ENV变量，扩展其值为文件名并执行该文件(如果存在且可读)
When bash is started in posix mode, as with the –posix command line option, it follows the POSIX standard for startup files. In this mode, interactive shells expand the ENV variable and commands are read and executed from the file whose name is the expanded value. No other startup files are read. Bash attempts to determine when it is being run with its standard input connected to a network connection, as when executed by the remote shell daemon, usually rshd, or the secure shell daemon sshd. If bash deter‐ mines it is being run in this fashion, it reads and executes commands from ~/.bashrc, if that file exists and is readable. It will not do this if invoked as sh. The –norc option may be used to inhibit this behavior, and the –rcfile option may be used to force another file to be read, but rshd does not generally invoke the shell with those options or allow them to be specified.
Bash会尝试根据输入决定它是否在以网络连接或shell daemon(rshd or sshd)执行的方式在运行，如果是的话，它会读取并执行~/.bashrc文件
If the shell is started with the effective user (group) id not equal to the real user (group) id, and the -p option is not supplied, no startup files are read, shell functions are not inherited from the environment, the SHELLOPTS, BASHOPTS, CDPATH, and GLOBIGNORE variables, if they appear in the environment, are ignored, and the effective user id is set to the real user id. If the -p option is supplied at invocation, the startup behavior is the same, but the effective user id is not reset.
- 以登录方式唤起bash时，会执行/etc/profile, .bash_profile文件
- ssh 远程执行命令时会，会执行.bashrc文件
