     3"Dotfiles" is often used as a generic term for any configuration file.  Typically these files are in the top level of your home directory, and begin with a dot ('.') as the first character (hence the name), which prevents them from showing up in directory listings unless the `-a` flag is passed to `ls`.

     5In the Athena environment, dotfiles largely refer to some specific dotfiles: 
     6 
     7* User-customizable dotfiles such as `.bashrc.mine`, `.cshrc,mine`, `.bash_environment`, `.startup.tty`, etc. 
     8* Stock dotfiles such as the Athena-provided `.cshrc.`, `.bashrc`, `.profile`, etc. 
     9* System initialization files invoked by the stock dotfiles, which are largely found in /usr/lib/init
