Alias physical location.

Hi All,

Please let me know where are the below Aliases are stored.

HTML Code:
alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'
alias ll='ls  -l --color=tty'
alias ls='ls --color=tty'
I tried searching it in my .bashrc and /etc/bashrc files but could not find .

Your help is much appreciated.

I am using "Linux" and my shell is "bash"


Thanks in advance
Manu.

Actually here
Code:
myalias

is the name given to our manual alias file.


Use
Code:
 locate alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'

from root directory. You will be able to find the path.

man bash :
Quote:
When bash is invoked as an interactive login shell, or as a non-interactive shell with the --login option, it first reads and exe‐
cutes commands from the file /etc/profile, if that file exists. After reading that file, it looks for ~/.bash_profile,
~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile, in that order, and reads and executes commands from the first one that exists and is readable. The
--noprofile option may be used when the shell is started to inhibit this behavior.
