.PROFILE File Extension
File Type 1Bash Shell Profile
|Developer||The GNU Project|
What is a PROFILE file?
Shell profile used by Linux and Mac OS X terminal programs; contains definitions for a shell environment, such as environment variables, scripts to execute, and other instructions; used for storing pre-defined settings that are loaded when a shell program starts.
When opening Apple Terminal in Mac OS X, the program automatically searches for a PROFILE file and executes it line by line as a shell script. To manually run a PROFILE file, use the command source ~/.profile.
PROFILE files are hidden files that do not have a filename prefix. They are always named .profile and are located in the user's home directory.
NOTE: Apple Terminal is a Bash shell program.
