AWS CLI multiple profiles

When using the AWS CLI, you may be working with multiple AWS accounts.  Therefore, you will want to have multiple profiles.  The profile configuration file is contained in the ~/.aws/config on Linux, OS X, or Unix.  In this file, you will list all of your profiles. At the command prompt or in your .profile file you can have do the following to chose the profile you would like:
export AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE=<profilename>
