Replace .bashrc, .bash_profile, .profile, etc. with something much more clean, consistent, and meaningful. Now a repo:
# License: Public Domain.
# Author: Joseph Wecker, 2012
# This gist is slow and is missing .bashrc_once
# Use the one in the repo instead!
# (Thanks gioele)
# Are you tired of trying to remember what .bashrc does vs .bash_profile vs .profile?

# Put's the script's directory in the $BS variable.
# Follows symlinks, works on mac-os as well as linux etc.
# Move final popd to the end of your script if you want to run your script with the script's directory as the working directory.
