Please give an example (in perl code) of hose List::Util can be used to solve the OP's problem
use warnings; use strict; use List::Util 'uniq'; my @given = (1,2,5,6,9,10,41..56); my @check = (3,4,9,11,48,102); my $c = uniq(@given); for(@check) { push(@given, $_); print "$_ is in the list\n" unless $c + 1 == uniq(@given); pop(@given); } __END__ Outputs: 9 is in the list 48 is in the list
List::Util::uniq() utilizes the hash lookup referred to elsewhere in this thread.
Some efficiency is lost in this script because uniq() has to generate the hash every time it is called.
It would be more efficient if the perl code itself created the hash (just once), and then re-used that hash for each number that needs to be checked.

Perhaps anonymous had some other List::Util routine in mind.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
