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.

   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.

OPTIONS
       -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.
