Quick source

After editing your .profile or UserSetupEnvironment, you need to “source” or basically “re-read” the file’s contents into memory in order for the changes to take effect. I’m lazy, and “source” is 5 letters too many. Just type:

. .profile

(or . ~/.profile if you are not in your home dir)

instead of

source .profile

Isn’t that much better? ; ^ )
