  • Not knowing if this a homework or what your teacher (if one) thinks about your question, but

    perhaps you try to read your textfile (line per line) into a 2D array (your separator is a "." (point)) , like

    users[x] = "1=userX;2=passwordX;".

    Then you can compare your 2-element input array with each one of the users[x] subarrays. If it fits you're in.

    note: case(in)sensible

    Hope thats hepls so far.
