 What happens when you invoke bash

Interesting article. I am sure that I am not alone in that I had never really given this subject a lot of thought.

"For a little while now I have been bothered when I login or launch a new shell. I say I have been bothered because, while I was dimly aware that bash was parsing some files (namely /etc/profile and ~/.bashrc), I wanted to know more. Also, on SUSE LINUX, the engineering teams have added some comments to /etc/profile that suggest you not make changes in that file but rather make those changes in /etc/profile.local. So as the title indicates this article is about what happens when bash is invoked specifically on SUSE Linux."
