You can create a file named .profile (dot profile) in your home
directory. The commands in this file will be run each time you log
Also, with the korn shell, you can create an invocation file that will
be run each time a korn shell is started. The korn shell looks for
the variable ENV in it's environment. If found, the korn shell will
execute the commands in the file that the ENV variable points to.
$ cat .profile
$ cat .ksh_options
alias dir='ls -la'
Hope this is of some help.
