    I assume, you mean your .bashrc, not the systemwide one.
    It is a textfile in your home directory.
    So this should do:
    vi ~/.bashrc
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Just remember, after editing file, it won't take effect until you open a new shell... or can force immediately with "source ~/.bashrc"

    The period or dot at the start of the filename makes it hidden by default. Thus you won't see it using ls in a terminal or with your file manager unless you specifically tell them to show hidden files.
