I've been having more trouble with my lottery program. At the moment I've got the program to take in the users numbers (basically any numbers between 0-49 they want for the lottery draw). These are stored in the array 'user'. I also have the random numbers created by the program created in the array 'numbers'.

What I want the program to do is search the array 'numbers' for each of the numbers in the array 'user'. At the moment the program only finds a match if the numbers are in the exact same position in the other array. If the number 7 say was at position 3 in both arrays it would be recognised, however if 7 was at position 3 in one array and position 5 in the other the program would not recongise the number was in both arrays . Any help would be much appreicated.

I am using Pascal in Xcode

```
program test;
uses
EmptyPlaceHolderUnit;
type
a = array[1..7] of integer;
b = array[1..7] of integer;
var
yn : string;
i : integer;
k, j, tmp: integer;
numbers: a;
user: b;
counter: integer;
var
subscript: integer;
procedure initialise (var counter: integer);
begin
counter := 0;
end;
procedure start_game (yn: string; i:integer; numbers: a);
begin
writeln (' ');
writeln (' And tonights Lottery Balls are...');
writeln
(' ');
randomize;
for i := 1 to 7 do
write(random(50),' '); {Selects 6 random integers from the range 0 - 49}
writeln(' ');
end;
procedure add_numbers (var numbers: a; k ,j, tmp: integer);
begin
writeln (' ');
for subscript := 1 to 7 do
begin
writeln('Please enter the lottery numbers'); {The program asks for the user }
readln(numbers[subscript]); {to enter the numbers back into the program}
end;
begin
numbers[1] := numbers[1];
numbers[2] := numbers[2];
numbers[3] := numbers[3];
numbers[4] := numbers[4];
numbers[5] := numbers[5];
numbers[6] := numbers[6];
numbers[7] := numbers[7];
for k := 1 to 6 do
for j := k + 1 to 7 do
if numbers[k] > numbers[j] then {Sorts numbers into ascending order}
begin
tmp := numbers[k];
numbers[k] := numbers[j];
numbers[j] := tmp;
end;
writeln(' ');
writeln('And tonights big money balls in ascending order are');
writeln(' ');
for k := 1 to 7 do
writeln(k,': ',numbers[k]); {displays numbers}
end;
end;
procedure get_details (var user: b);
var
subscript: integer;
begin
writeln (' ');
for subscript := 1 to 7 do
begin
writeln('Please type in your numbers ');
readln(user[subscript]);
end;
end;
procedure search_for_numbers (numbers: a; user: b; var counter: integer);
var
subscript: integer;
begin
for subscript := 1 to 7 do
begin
if user[subscript] = numbers[subscript] then
counter := counter + 1;
end;
end;
procedure display_results (counter: integer);
begin
if counter = 0 then
writeln('Unlucky! You have ', counter, ' numbers ')
else
writeln('Congratulations you have ', counter, ' number(s) ');
end;
begin
initialise(counter);
start_game(yn, i, numbers);
add_numbers(numbers, k ,j, tmp);
get_details(user);
search_for_numbers(numbers,user,counter);
display_results(counter);
end.
