Matching names from 1 array in another array
Just wondering if someone could give me a hand quickly. I have this piece of code that I want to be able to search for names in an array and if it finds them then it matches them.
e.g. The code below would find 2 matches.
Hope someone can help. Thanks
name = [Simon, Jim,Mark,Ryan];
stored_names = [Jim,Simon,James,Simon,Tim];
var match_checker = 0;
for (var count_index = 0; count_index < name.length; count_index = count_index ++)
if (name[count_index] == stored_names)
match_checker = match_checker + 1;
document.write (match_checker); //display numb of matches

If you are using strings, quote them.
var name = ['Simon','Jim','Mark','Ryan']

for (i=0; i<names1.length; i+=1)
results+=names1[i]+" found ";
for (j=1; j<names2.length; j+=1)
