NAME
       chsh - change your login shell

SYNOPSIS
       chsh [-s shell] [-l] [-u] [-v] [username]

DESCRIPTION
       chsh  is  used  to  change your login shell.  If a shell is not given on the command line,
       chsh prompts for one.

       chsh is used to change local entries only. Use ypchsh, lchsh or any  other  implementation
       for non-local entries.

OPTIONS
       -s, --shell shell
	      Specify your login shell.

       -l, --list-shells
	      Print the list of shells listed in /etc/shells and exit.

       -u, --help
	      Print a usage message and exit.

       -v, --version
	      Print version information and exit.

VALID SHELLS
       chsh will accept the full pathname of any executable file on the system.  However, it will
       issue a warning if the shell is not listed in the /etc/shells file.  On the other hand, it
       can  also  be  configured such that it will only accept shells listed in this file, unless
       you are root.

EXIT STATUS
       Returns 0 if operation was successful, 1 if operation failed or	command  syntax  was  not
       valid.

SEE ALSO
       login(1), passwd(5), shells(5)
