Hi I have this piece of code that checks every single pair of useri

Hi

I have this piece of code that checks every single pair of userid's and passwoard in an array, however even if the userID is found in the first line, it will still go on to check the whole of the rest of the array.

foreach $user (@users){
$_ = $user;
if ( /$userid\#(.*?)\#/ )
  {
  $password = $1;
  }
else
  {
  $nouser = 1;
  }
}

Is there anyway of terminating the serarch (exiting the loop) when the userID is found?

Thanks
Will

RE: Hi I have this piece of code that checks every single pair of useri

You are not doing anything to break the loop.  You can use 'last' to break the loop once you find what you want
....like this.....


#!/usr/local/bin/perl
$num = 3;
foreach $tmp (0..6)
    {
    print "Tmp $tmp\n";
    if ($tmp != $num) { next; }
    if ($tmp == $num) { last; }
    }

Thanks, for that I will give it a go.  Sorry about the spelling of my post, we had beers in the office :)
