1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'm playing around in UNIX and I wanted to modify my .profile file in my home directory, but It's not there. I know you type in ls -a to view the hidden files but it's simply not there. Do I just create one? I want it to just display my name every time i log in. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I'm new with bash, i don't know much of its scripting but I think all I have to do is write an echo statement at the end of it - after creating the file in vim or something? #!/bin/bash echo "blablabla" I've tried this and it doesn't work.
