chsh - change your login shell
chsh [-s shell] [-l] [-h] [-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 supports non-local entries (kerberos, LDAP, etc.) if linked with libuser, otherwise use ypchsh(1), lchsh(1) or any other implementation for non-local entries.
-s, --shell shell
chsh will accept the full pathname of any executable file on the system.
The default behavior for non-root users is to accept only shells listed in the /etc/shells file, and issue a warning for root user. It can also be configured at compile-time to only issue a warning for all users.
Returns 0 if operation was successful, 1 if operation failed or command syntax was not valid.
