Hey everyone,
I'm programming (obviously) and have run into a challenge.

I'll cut right to the chase, if someone would tell me how to
compare a variable to each item in an array I would be very grateful.

Thanks for the help!


Looping over the array and comparing values would be the simplest solution. If it is an array of primitive values, use the comparison operator == . If it is an array of reference types, use the equals method (or compareTo if the reference type implements natural ordering).

Another simple way would be to make sure your array is sorted ( Arrays.sort ) and then use the Arrays.binarySearch method.
