Hi,

I'm new to Linux. I wanted to know what is the difference between .bash_profile, .bash and .bashrc? And also where are they located i.e. the directory path?

Thanks

This question has NOTHING to do with Oracle.
GOOGLE is your friend, but only if you are willing to use it.

Or if you REALLY want to know then:
$ man bash
& Read The Fine Man page

Well, actually is does have to with Oracle because I am doing an Oracle install on Linux and I have to add some lines of script as part of the Oracle Install. I have to add some lines to the .bash_profile but I can't seem to locate it, nor do I understand the difference between the three types mentioned above.

Another thing. I am trying to execute the following command but I am getting an error. I am giving this command right before I run the installer.

[oracle@rh-staging database]$ id uid=201(oracle) gid=202(oinstall) groups=201(dba),202(oinstall) context=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

I think you could see it in a user directory. In our instance there are 2 users mainly Apps user & DB user both have .bash_profile. Im not sure what their difference are but we use .bash_profile to automatically load env files. It is automatically executed as soon as you login.

as anacedent said
you could view it by using

ls -la since its a hidden file.
