How can I do it?
To explain:
I modified .bash_profile in my home directory, added my jdk to the path.
How do I get it to reload my profile without logging out/in?
Thanks

execute the following command:
bash# . .bash_profile
important is the single '.' on the beginning (bash# stands only for prompt)

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
