comment Can a home directory have both .cshrc and .bashrc files?
@KeithThompson: The bourne shell variants tend to share profiles but this is not always the case. The rc files usually have different defaults, although there can be configuration options to address this. Newer shell builds and newer platforms tend to be more likely to have this capability.
