How to pass two or more parameters to the main in shell script

Hey Guys

from the below script what I understood is we are sending the the first parameter as input to the main (){} file
main > $LOGFILE 2>&1
but can we send two or three parameter as input to this main file as
main > $LOGFILE 2>&1 2>&2 like this

Can any one plz help I need to writ a script which takes three parameters


DATESTAMP=`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S`
listOrders OrderList;\n

SQL_B="\nFORALL i IN listOrders.FIRST..listOrders.LAST\n
where ordr_id = listOrders(i)\n
DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(SQL%ROWCOUNT || ' row(s) actually updated.' );

. $DIRNAME/set_env.ksh

echo "----------------------------------------------------------------------"
echo $DIRNAME"/"$0
echo "Using:"$ORACLE_SID

n=`grep -c '^[0-9]\{1,10\}$' $infile`
echo $n "order id(s) found to process in" $infile

if [ $n -lt 1 ]; then
echo "Nothing to do..."
exit 0;

echo "Generating SQL";

grep '^[0-9]\{1,10\}$' $infile | awk '{print "listOrders("NR") := "$1";"}' >> $SQL_TEMP_FILE

echo "Running SQL_PLUS"

sqlplus -s / @$SQL_TEMP_FILE

mv $SQL_TEMP_FILE $LOGDIR/proc_stuck_csos.sql.log

if [ $# != 1 ]; then
echo "Usage: $0 input-file"
exit 1
if [ ! -r $ARGI ]; then
echo "Error: File not found, or file unreadable!"
exit 1

main > $LOGFILE 2>&1

Thanks in advance
