Determine if an array contains a particular value

In this example we check to see if a particular name is in an array of names.


var(myNames = array('Sean', 'Jono', 'Jess', 'Eric', 'Kyle'))

//test for Jess
if( $myNames->contains('Jess') ) => {^
     'Jess is in the list'
     'Jess is not in the list'


Jess is in the list
