       shells - pathnames of valid login shells

       /etc/shells  is a text file which contains the full pathnames of valid login shells.  This
       file is consulted by chsh(1) and available to be queried by other programs.

       Be aware that there are programs which consult this file to find out if a user is a normal
       user. E.g.: ftp daemons traditionally disallow access to users with shells not included in
       this file.

       /etc/shells may contain the following paths:



       chsh(1), getusershell(3)
