NAME
shells -- shell database
DESCRIPTION
The shells file contains a list of the shells on the system. It can be used in conjunction with the Hesiod domain `shells', and the NIS map `shells', as controlled by nsswitch.conf(5). For each shell a single line should be present, consisting of the shell's path, relative to root. A hash (``#'') indicates the beginning of a comment; subsequent charac- ters up to the end of the line are not interpreted by the routines which search the file. Blank lines are also ignored.
FILES
/etc/shells The shells file resides in /etc.
