So far all of our configurations for our Unix working environment have been…done in either the .bash_profile configuration file, or in .bashrc and that's…typically the two places that you'll locate them, because those are the files…that get read in when you first start a new session and they set things up the way you like.…But there is one other configuration file that I don't want us to forget about,…which is the logout file. That's in bash_logout, and anything that's in there will…get executed whenever we log out of Unix. Let's take a look at how it works.…Let's create a new file. You see I don't have a bash_logout file right now,…So let's do nano .bash_logout and in it let's just put echo "See ya later!",…which is nice and simple.…
That's the command that we get run whenever we log out.…Now on a Mac, let me just show you first of all that there is the file .bash_logout.…Now on a Mac, it's not that useful because if we close this window, if we just…go up here and close it, well then we'll never see that echo statement.…
