comment Why my $PATH is not inherited by the invoked bash?
exec bash --norc + source .bashrc is different from exec bash --login and exec bash --noprofile. Leaving exec out does not change anything. The other environment variables are not changed. If I setenv v hi in tcsh, then I can see it when I do echo $v in bash whichever way it was invoked it. So it is something that manipulates the environment. In man bash (as far as I read) several scripts are listed as a startup sequence (for a login shell however): /etc/profile, ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, ~/.profile. Out of those only /etc/profile exists on my system.

It just seems this stackexchange site is less crowded, than superuser.com

Didn't do anything new. I login to my box, do some changes to my $PATH, then do exec bash --login and loose the my $PATH that was available in tcsh.
