    1. Create a directory ~/bashrc.d.
    2. Place a bash script containing your customizations in a file within this directory (such as ~/bashrc.d/00-local.sh. Actually, you can have any number of such files; the standard startup procedure will apply them in alphabetical order after applying the class standard files.
    3. Mark the file(s) in bashrc.d as executable, with
         chmod u+rx ~/bashrc.d/*
  8. Please use bug-submit for all questions about bugs in your code. No, we can't magically figure out what's wrong in general without ALL your code and an explanation of the how to reproduce the problem. Just run
    bug-submit proj1
    from within a directory on the instructional machines containing your entire project and also a file named ERROR with a description of the bug symptoms and how to reproduce them.
