NAME

List::Util::Find - List utilities related to finding items

VERSION

This document describes version 0.005 of List::Util::Find (from Perl distribution List-Util-Find), released on 2023-09-16.

SYNOPSIS

 use List::Util::Find qw(hasnum hasstr);

 my @ary = (1,3,"foo",7,2,"bar",10,"baz");

 if (hasnum 3, @ary) {
     ...
 }

 if (hasstr "baz", @ary) {
     ...
 }

DESCRIPTION

Experimental.

FUNCTIONS

Not exported by default but exportable.

hasnum

Usage:

 hasnum $num, ...

Like grep { $_ == $num } ... except: 1) it short-circuits (exits early as soon as an item is found); 2) it makes sure undef does not match; 3) it makes sure non-numeric scalars don't match when $num is zero. It is equivalent to something like:

 use List::Util qw(first);
 use Scalar::Util qw(looks_like_number);
 defined(first { defined && looks_like_number($_) && $_ == $num } @list);

except it does not use any module.

hasstr

Usage:

 hasstr $str, ...

Like grep { $_ eq $num } ... except: 1) it short-circuits (exits early as soon as an item is found); 2) it makes sure undef does not match empty string. It is equivalent to something like:

 use List::Util qw(first);
 defined(first { defined && $_ eq $str } @list);

except it does not use any module.

FAQ

How about hasundef, hasref, hasarrayref, ...?

They are trivial enough:

 first { !defined } @list;
 first { ref $_ } @list;
 first { ref $_ eq 'ARRAY' } @list;
 # and so on

CONTRIBUTING

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.

Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:

 % prove -l

If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
