GETUSERSHELL

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2016-03-15
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

getusershell, setusershell, endusershell - get permitted user shells  

SYNOPSIS

#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():

    Since glibc 2.21:
        _DEFAULT_SOURCE
    In glibc 2.19 and 2.20:
        _DEFAULT_SOURCE || (_XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE < 500)
    Up to and including glibc 2.19:
        _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
