in thread Set Notation Handling

This is really a great module, but what would be the simplest way to just say do this:

$set_spec = '1-4,6,9,12-18'; if ($value IS IN $set_spec){ print "$value is valid\n"; }else{ print "$value is invalid\n"; }

    Member testing is included in Set::IntSpan. Try this.
    use strict; use Set::IntSpan; + my $set = new Set::IntSpan('1-4,6,9,12-18'); testvalue(3, $set); testvalue(7, $set); + sub testvalue { my $value = shift; my $set = shift; if (member $set $value){ print "$value is valid\n"; }else{ print "$value is invalid\n"; } }
      That works perfectly! Thank you sooo much for your help!
