I'm writing a bash wrapper script that will pass arguments to the command. I need to find out the last argument if I call the wrapper as follows:
./wrapper -a -b --longarg=foo thisfilename.txt
./wrapper -a -b thisfilename.txt
./wrapper -a --next=true thisfilename.txt
I want thisfilename.txt stored in a shell variable called $last. How do I find the last argument passed to a shell script written in bash or ksh under Unix like operating systems?
