$* and $@


Consider the following code..

Code:
      1 #!/bin/bash
      2
      3 count=1
      4 for param in "$*"
      5 do
      6     echo "\$* Parameter #$count = $param"
      7     count=$[ $count + 1 ]
      8 done
      9
     10 count=1
     11 for param in "$@"
     12 do
     13     echo "\$@ Parameter #$count = $param"
     14     count=$[ $count + 1 ]
     15 done

Here $* variable takes all of the parameters supplied on the command line as a single word and $@ variable takes all the parameters supplied on the command line as separate words in the same string.

I don't understand your question. The script is behaving exactly as expected.
