command line paramaters

how do you get the 10... element from a command line arguments.


ex:#!/usr/bin/ksh
echo $1 $2 $3 $4 $5 $6 $7 $8 $9 $10


param "this" "is" "the" "worst" "script" "in" "the" "whole" "world" "for" "sure"

output:
this is the worst script in the whole world this0

its giving me $1 value and 0

thanks in advance
