[thelist] iteratively comparing to an array with VBScript

	There isn't really a way to do that with an array in VBScript...
BUT you can easily convert the array into a string and use that, i.e.

Dim myString
' Make the array into a string; use a delimiter that you 
'  probably won't see in the array elements.
myString = Join(myArray, "|")

For each subfolder in folders
	If InStr(myString, folder.name) > 0 Then
		'do the stuff
	End If

Not quite. My pseudo code would be

For each subfolder in folders
	if folder.name is in myArray
		do the stuff
	end if

So, how do I check to see if the current folder.name is in my array of
valid values? Guess that's my question: do I have to loop through the
array each time I check another folder, or is there a simpler way?
