The bash shell is fully documented in the info/ file that
should reside under the root of your cygwin32 installation.  You will
find a discussion of the startup files it uses there.

This file is most easily browsed with an info file viewer such as the
one built into emacs.  It is, however, a mostly ASCII file, so any
reasonable editor or file viewer (even your web browser) will do.
