If you wanted to loop through each element in an array to do a one-to-one evaluation for each element pair in an array, you can:

Code:
$elementCount = @a;
$count = 0;

while ( $count < $elementCount )
{
   if ( $a[$count] == $b[$count] )
   {
      print "\$a[$count]: $a[$count] = \$b[$count]: $b[$count]\n";
   }
   $count++;
}

(remember to use eq instead of == if you are working with text)
