        Hello

         

        I downloaded ROOT program  https://root.cern.ch/downloading-root

         

        At the end of this page, it says

         

        Basically it is enough to use a special script distributed with ROOT:

        • For the sh shell family do: . <pathname>/root/bin/thisroot.sh
        • For the csh shell family do: source <pathname>/root/bin/thisroot.csh

        where <pathname> is the location where you unpacked the ROOT distribution.

        Typically add these lines to your .profile or .login files.

         

        For my mac, .<pathname>/root/bin/thisroot.sh needs to be added to the .profile or .login files

         

        However, I was not able to find these files.

          macOS does not create any default UNIX shell startup files (~/.profile, ~/.login, and so on).  If you need them, just create them yourself.
