Reload .bash_profile without logging in again

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 :)
