in reply to Making a match

Previous respondents have suggested efficient ways for various circumstances. As for the simplest way:

use Quantum::Superpositions; if ($x == any(@list)) { ... }

Note that the latest release of Q::S (just uploaded to the CPAN last week) is iterator-based and therefore much more efficient that previous versions. We have Steven Lembark to thank for that.

Note too that, whilst the performance of the grep- and hash-based solutions may improve slightly over time, the any solution will continue to improve significantly with future releases of Quantum::Superpositions, then with the new Perl6::Junctions module, and ultimately with the availability of any as a built-in feature of Perl 6.
