I'm seeing conflicting advice on this.
States the bash manual and best practice is to have .bash_profile link to .bashrc, not the other way around.
In my dotfiles, .bashrc doesn’t do anything except sourcing .bash_profile.
The comments in https://github.com/janmoesen/tilde/blob/master/.bashrc shed some light on why it makes sense to source .bash_profile from within .bashrc.
@wamatt can this be closed?
