There is a recent question regarding multiple sysadmins working as root, and
sudo bash -l was referenced.
I searched for this on google and SE, but I don't understand the difference between
sudo bash -l and
From the man pages for bash and sudo it seems that the difference may be that
sudo bash -l runs ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile, and ~/.bash_logout of the root user, but from testing myself it looks like it runs the normal user's .bashrc and not the root one. I may have misunderstood which user the ~ expression is referencing in the man pages.
Clarification of the difference and usage scenarios would be appreciated.
