.bashrc does not work

First i would like to thank the CLDG developers for their nice release.
i want some commands are run when i open a console (i.e. source /opt/intel/compiler/bin/ifortvars.sh for intel compiler). usually we put the command in .bashrc file. in CLDG there is no .bashrc file so i created that file and wrote that command in it, but it does not work. what is the script file that configure the console?
is there any other file (like .profile) that can do the same for all users?

Use the file $HOME/.bash_profile, or /etc/bash/bashrc for all users.
