4.4.1 The Init File, ~/.guile

When run interactively, Guile will load a local initialization file from ~/.guile. This file should contain Scheme expressions for evaluation.

This facility lets the user customize their interactive Guile environment, pulling in extra modules or parameterizing the REPL implementation.

To run Guile without loading the init file, use the -q command-line option.
