Positional Parameters

$* expands to a single word, which contains the values of all positional parameters $1, … .

$@ is similar, but produces multiple values, one for each positional parameter.

Examples

Print positional parameters as one value :

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

Output: value: a b.
