is bashrc mandatory


is bashrc mandatory


Hi, I recently installed cloudera VM and practicing in that. In many of the tutorial videos, I see a file called bashRC getting updated for environment variables. Is this a mandatory one? If yes, can you please help me with some existing files which I can refer for my CDH5?

No it is not. In real world scenario you may not use it unless you want to export some sort of environment specific variables when a user logs into the machine.
