How do I find the first array element for which a condition is true?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

You can use this if you care about the index:

    for ($i=0; $i < @array; $i++) {
        if ($array[$i] eq "Waldo") {
            $found_index = $i;
            last;
        }
    }

Now $found_index has what you want.

[karlgoethebier]: Totally OT but my pleasure: Next week i'll have my first archery lesson.
[Corion]: Hi jkva!
[Corion]: karlgoethevier: Oooh, that sounds interesting! ;)
[karlgoethebier]: btw, good morning
[Happy-the-monk]: karlgoethebier: have fun! Did some archery at the age of 14 or so.
[karlgoethebier]: Corion: It is, indeed.
[Happy-the-monk]: even more OT: received the complete series of Robin Hood/Robin of Sherwood 1984 on used dvds this morning :)
