in thread smart match capture

Unfortunately, from exists in perlfunc:

Be aware that calling exists on array values is deprecated and likely +to be removed in a future version of Perl.
Not sure what you mean by "last", that exits a block. Maybe you were thinking of first in List::Util?
my $retn = first {m/aa/} @a;
But that is not using the smart-match operator (~~ not =~)
