I'm assuming that @crxfnp02_users contains one username per line of the
file, and you want to see if $chester_userid is in there somewhere.

For matching elements of an array, grep is your friend :)


As Nigel said, using "use strict" would have immediately caught the
glaring problem (using $crxfnp02_users which was never defined).
