getusershell

       #include <unistd.h>

       char *getusershell(void);

       void setusershell(void);

       void endusershell(void);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       getusershell(), setusershell(), endusershell():
           _BSD_SOURCE || (_XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE < 500)

DESCRIPTION
       The  getusershell()  function  returns  the  next  line  from  the file
       /etc/shells, opening the file if necessary.  The  line  should  contain
       the  pathname  of a valid user shell.  If /etc/shells does not exist or
       is unreadable, getusershell() behaves as if /bin/sh and  /bin/csh  were
       listed in the file.

       The setusershell() function rewinds /etc/shells.

       The endusershell() function closes /etc/shells.

RETURN VALUE
       The getusershell() function returns NULL on end-of-file.

FILES
       /etc/shells
