Jessie!?! Jess_i_e, ewww :) sorry old habit j/k :)
(don't worry, just teasing you)

Anyways, if you check the gcc manual -O is 'Optimization Options',
'These control various sorts of optimizations:' then goes on listing
each level (aka, -O0, -O1, -O2, -O3)

btw, like others have mentioned, it's 'source or '.' then give the shell
script or configuration file (.bashrc .bash_login .bash_profile
..bash_logout, etc) and yeah, 'source' and '.' are the same.

Executing sh or bash like someone metioned will actually spawn another
shell (so your running bash inside bash) which isn't re-reading the
configuration file.
