if listElement in aList: ... do stuff ...
In Perl you gotta do this with grep (or something else like that).

Although we can apparently look forward to the following constructs in Perl 6 (if I read this correctly):

# Do stuff if $list_element is in @a_list if ($list_element =~ @a_list) { ... do stuff ... } # ... OR ... # Loop through a bunch of list elements foreach @list_elements { # Do stuff if the current element is in @a_list when @a_list { ... do stuff ... } # If not in @a_list, what about @other_list ? when @other_list { ... do stuff ... } }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
