There are probably hundred sof tutorials on the Korn shell available on the Web.
Just use your favorite search engine to find "ksh tutorial function"

Code:
#!/usr/bin/ksh

function foo
{
    echo "Argument 1: $1"
    echo "Argument 2: $2"
    echo "All agruments: $*"
}

bar()
{
    echo "Argument 1: $1"
    echo "Argument 2: $2"
    echo "All agruments: $*"
}

foo one two
bar three four
