Pass a paramenter into a script

Hello,

I was just curious if anyone would know how to code in KORN the accept a parameter from the start of the KORN.

For example...

$ myshell.ksh 55

“55” would represent the parameter I want to add to the script and assign a variable. Within the script it would look something like this

Code:
input=$! (the $1 would be the 55)

if [[ $input != ‘  ' ]]
then
$input=variable123
echo $variable123
fi

Any help would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance......

[nameofprogram] [parameter]

and its is automaticly assigned to $1

e.g.

Testprogram myinput

echo $1
myinput
