# Three variables to keep track of the user inputs

$login=Variable1
$email=Variable2
$pagename=Variable3


# Write the login name and email address to a separate file for confirmation
# when they want to edit their page

open (FILE, ">>$data") || die "I can't open $data\n";
print FILE "$login&&$email&&$pagename\n";
close(FILE);

# Here we check the details of the user

sub checkuser {
open(FILE, "$data") || die "I can't open $data\n";      

      while(<FILE>) {
      chop;            
      @all = split(/\n/);

      foreach $line (@all) {
      ($loginname, $loginemail, $loginpagename) = split(/&&/, $line);

      if($loginname eq "$login" && $loginemail eq "$email" && $loginpagename eq "$pagename") {

Are you using .htaccess, or is it all cgi based? In other
words, is this page that is supposed to be restricted a
known URL, or is it only accessed after they have gone through
a username/password form page?

Also, what system is this on? Unix?
