The most recent stable release of Perl only comes with List::Util 1.27.

use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

    Well, since I'm running Perl 5.18.2, I guess the fact that I have List::Util::any must mean that somewhere along the way I've installed the latest dual-lived version of the module.

    Anyway, is there any disagreement that "any" (under whichever banner it marches) is a reasonable utility for determining if any of the elements in an array meets some criteria? If I recall, it's also a PBP recommendation for the same reason I gave: That, unlike grep, it gives an appropriate and clear name to the functionality at work.

      Certainly no disagreement. The aforementioned match::simple even uses any.

      use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name
