I am currently trying to learn the sequence of files and scripts used in a typical UNIX login procedure.
There are so many files:
I don't know where to begin. I am mainly interested how these sequence of files works to set up my enviroment
variables. These variables seem to be scattered throughout the above files and I am chasing my own tail. It is
interesting that certain variables are global throughout my UNIX session regardless of what shell I use after
logging in (exam: from "csh" to "sh", etc.)
If someone could give me an "in depth" example of a login procedure or point me in the proper direction, I
would greatly appreciate it. My own default shell is "tcsh" if this matters, but I am more interested in
learning the procedures that are general for all shells (if this is possible).
I have tried to "RTFM" but can't find any satisfactory info for what I am looking for.
