    Linux customization help: newbie

    Fellow, Unix guru's

    Need help customizing my bash shell
    with alias commands everytime I set a alias ex: alias ll= 'ls -al'
    the next time I log in at school I have to reset it again
    I have search my textbook "Guide to Using Unix"
    and it does not speak on it all.

    OS: Redhat Linux 7.4.2

    How can I make aliases stay in me bash shell even when I logout
    thank ahead of time.

    I don't use bash shell anymore, but there should be a file along the lines of .bashrc or something. If you add the alias's to that file, they will stay. This works in the shells I use.

    I prefer the tcsh shell but the teacher got us restrict to bash.

    .bashrc >> alias at = 'Adven thanks '
    I'll give it a try later.
