That works for
/tmp/>echo "hello world\n" | myscript
and now called on its own doesn't hang
but there again its not clear how a usage message could be printed out.

But it now fails when passed a filename

/tmp/>cat x October 2011 S M Tu W Th F S 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 /tmp/myscript x
it doesn't print the contents of the file :-( Isn't there a simpler solution? I thought that this would have a simple, forehead slapping, solution.
