Searching All Lines

Hi Josh,

Here's a slight variation on the approach. If you
chnge the line format a bit so that it's
<TAB>UserName<TAB>EncodedPassword

Instead of goin through the entire file, line per
line, you can search for the line containing the
UserName with :
  get lineOffset(tab&UserName&tab, the_file)

"it" will be 0 if the UserName is not in the file.
Otherwise, to obtain the encoded password, use :
  get item 2 of line it of the_file

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
