I thought I understood how the environment is setup but I guess I don't
Can anyone tell me the order and file names that are executed to get the
environment setup for a bash shell and tcsh shell?
/etc/profile -> /etc/bashrc -> ~/.bash_profile -> ~/.bash_login ->

/etc/csh.cshrc -> /etc/csh.login -> ~/.tcshrc -> ~/.history -> ~/.login

What is executed prior to these files for setting up the environment?
I added an echo statement for PATH as a first line in /etc/csh.cshrc.  this
variable was already defined with paths.  Where does this get initialized?

Help me.
