Passing variables to the scripts

How can we use variables ie. $1, $2 etc within a script and then pass them at invocation.

For example I create a script which need to Put 3 files to the Open SSH server. I would like to invoke a common script with a stored session and pass the filenames in the command line.
Example:
winscp3 abc@example.com /script=ex.txt file1 file2 file3

Within the script I would use
put $1
put $2
put $3
where $1 = file1 etc.

Any ideas anybody?

Re: Passing variables to the scripts

It is not bad idea, however WinSCP currently does not allow it.
But you can easily implement this using .bat file:
@echo off
rem Do we have some parameters at all?
if "x%1" == "x" goto syntax
rem Delete the old script, if exists
if exist script.txt del script.txt 
:next
rem Append "put" command for the file
echo put %1 >> script.txt
rem Delete the first parameter and shift remaning by one to left
shift
rem Are we at the end of parameter list already?
if not "x%1" == "x" goto next
winscp3 abc@example.com /script=script.txt
goto quit
:syntax
echo upload.bat file1 [file2 ...]
:quit
