From the exercise:
Do I have to create this file using nano text editor or it is just a recommend? If just recommend, then why do you recommend it over other text editors? I mean each text editor have something that is good on it own depends on what we need to do with our code to choose the one that we think most suitable with. Let me narrow my question down a bit. In this case, creating bash_profile, what qualification we are looking for in a particular text editor to use?
Another question regarding bash profile is where should I save this file on my local machine? I mean as newbie, I have so many choices to choose where to save this file. My usual go-to would be My Documents on Windows and Linux or Desktops, but I don’t know how would it effect my code result (if any) when I try to run it such as can’t find directory or can’t open or can’t run, etc?
When I run it, should I run Windows Git Bash / Windows Power Shell as administrator or just a regular user? Why (prefer just a short answer specifically to this case only to avoid too much off topic)?
Does this file has to be named “bash_profile”? I mean can it be something else such as “xyz”? Not that I would call it “xyz” but I am wondering what make this file unique and stand out as a file that contain command line instead of just plain text or another code file? What tell our machine?
