That's the correct way if you actually need to use the index values
during the iteration (although you'd want quotes if this were an
associative array).

If you just need to iterate over the values, and don't need the indices,
then it can be simplified:

for value in "address@hidden"; do

Or you can use printf's implicit looping if all you're doing is printing
the values (I showed that earlier).
