if listElement in aList: ... do stuff ...
In Perl you gotta do this with grep (or something else like that).

Although we can apparently look forward to the following constructs in Perl 6 (if I read this correctly):

# Do stuff if $list_element is in @a_list if ($list_element =~ @a_list) { ... do stuff ... } # ... OR ... # Loop through a bunch of list elements foreach @list_elements { # Do stuff if the current element is in @a_list when @a_list { ... do stuff ... } # If not in @a_list, what about @other_list ? when @other_list { ... do stuff ... } }
