In the ReadMe.pdf that came with the mysql that I downloaded from
mysql.com, there is this comment:

------
You might want to add aliases to your shell's resource file to make it
easier to access commonly used programs such as `mysql' and `mysqladmin'
from the command line. The syntax for `bash' is this:

alias mysql=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql
alias mysqladmin=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin

Even better, add `/usr/local/mysql/bin' to your `PATH' environment
variable. You can do this by modifying the appropriate startup file for
your shell. For more information, see *Note invoking-programs.
-------

My questions are these: 

1.    What is the appropriate startup file for my shell (which is bash
on OS X)?

2.    Is this the best discussion group for the question above?

----------

The installation comment said "For more information, see *Note
invoking-programs" but I don't find such a note in all of the downloaded
material.

Thank you for your help.
