Add parameter


I have a ftp script "script1" like this

#vi script1
ftp ip <<EOF
lcd dir1
cd dir2
put ${1}
! script2
bye
EOF


then I run it as
#script1 myfile

then it could ftp myfile to remote site , it works fine , that mean ${1} is the parameter

In the script1 , it will run another script ( script2) , now I would like this scripts also use the parameter , for example , I would like to display the parameter of ${1} like below , what can i do ?

I tried to edit script2 as below
#vi script2
echo ${1}

what I expect the result is myfile , but it didn't , can advise what can i do ? thx

I am not sure I understand you correctly, but nonetheless, if you call script2 from within script1, you need to pass it the argument, just like you pass it to script1.

Code:
#this is inside script1
./screen2 "${1}"

Ouch, I meant "script2". That illustrates how to call script2 from within script1 passing $1 to script2. Isn't that what you intended?
