In my bash shell I want my prompt to be of format ‘$”Present working directory”:”hostname”> and load a file containing a list of user defined functions as soon as I login , how will you automate this?

In bash shell we can create “.profile”  file which automatically gets invoked as soon as I login and write the following syntax into it.

export PS1=’$ `pwd`:`hostname`>’ .File1

Here File1 is the file containing the user defined functions and “.” invokes this file in current shell.
