Hey, it looks like the Perl6 people have been reading up on Fortran 90...(although it's quite possible any was adapted to Fortran90 from some other language).

Fortran 90's any statement returns true of false if any element in an array meets a test condition, e.g.,

integer,dimension(6) :: ar ar = (/1,3,4,5,6,7/) if(any(ar > 4) then # returns true if any element of ar is greater tha +n 4 call a_miracle_happens_here endif

I'm still wondering why everybody was using regex for the test; it looks like a numerical comparison to me.

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.
