Reading from a file(passing the file as input parameter)

hi
I have a shell script say primary.sh . There is a file called params
my scenario is
primary.sh should read all the values and echo it
for example
i should pass like
$primary.sh params
output would be
Abc
bpe
crv
fett
All the above values are from the file params
That is primary.sh should read all the values from the file params and echo it .Till it is exhausted

Thanks in advance
