comment How can I get the tac command on OS X?
Well, actually using a shell alias may fail because aliases don't transfer into shell scripts. Use a function like tac() { tail -r -- "$@"; }

comment Arrays in Unix Bourne Shell
It may be worth noting that positional parameters differ from bash arrays in some key features. For example, they do not support sparse arrays, and since sh doesn't have slicing parameter expansion, you can't access sublists like "${@:2:4}". To be sure, I see the similarities, but I don't regard positional parameters as an array per se.
