Reload .bash_profile without logging in again

My PyQt GUI book Create Simple GUI Applications has been updated, with new chapters on multithreading and packaging your apps. Get it here.

Update your session to new settings in .bash_profile without logging out and back in again.

At the prompt enter:

source ~/.bash_profile

add the following line to your .bash_profile or .bash_aliases file alias reload='source $HOME/.bash_profile' after running source ~/.bash_profile the command reload will be available to do the same thing :)
