actually syntax is

create function login(@p1 integer, @p2 varchar) returns integer as
begin
  declare @result integer =0;
  select @result = sign(count(1)) from users where userid=@p1 and password=@p2;
  return @result; -- 0 : failed, no such user, 1: success there is a user with that password  
end;
