Positional Parameters

$@ expands to the positional parameters $1, … producing one field for each parameter.

$* is similar, but only produces a single value, which contains all values at once.

Examples

Print all positional parameters :

1
2
set a b
for p in "$@"; do echo "value: $p"; done

Output: value: a and value: b.
