I have a bunch of MYSQL tables and files to back up.  I want to write some
scripts that call functions so that I can reuse them.  I need to have a
script that gets called like this

backsql tablename weekly

Table name and weekly are 2 parameters.  In dos we use to code that with %1
%2 or maybe it was just numbers.  How do I pass parameters to a script?  I
need a sample to work from so I can get started.  Then I can read manuals.
What file names do I use in Linux.  Would it be or something
like that?
