Where can you edit your ".profile"

Does OSX contain this file at all? Because there are certain aliases I would like to add to the command line and a few directories to my MAN path, but I cannot find the file that contains my profile. Anyone know how to get to it?

First, what shell are you using? tcsh?

Create a file called .tcshrc in your home directory. Make sure you use the right syntax because csh/tcsh is not the same as bash.

Also check out the files in /usr/share/init/tcsh .

I use the the tcsh and the C Shell. But I think I will stick with .tcshrc profile. I was thinking about doing that. Thanks, that helps
