       chsh - change your login shell

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

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

       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.

       -s, --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.

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