           Summary: Confusing text in the 'Bash Shell Startup Files'
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: SVN
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: randy at linuxfromscratch.org
         QAContact: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

Noted in the 'Bash Shell Startup files' section in the 
'After LFS Configuration Issues' chapter is the following paragraph:

"To the standard files, /etc/bashrc is called from the user's ~/.bashrc
for system wide initialization of non-login shells."

I do not understand what this is supposed to mean. If perhaps I'm just
being dense and cannot comprehend the obvious, please close this bug
with my apologies.

However, after reading it several times, and *trying* to interpret the
meaning, I cannot. I suppose what is throwing me off are the words
"To the standard files". I cannot understand what this means.

Perhaps someone could reword it so it isn't so vague?
