var( People_Array = staticarray('John Doe' = 'Person One',
                                'Jane Doe' = 'Person Two', 
                                'Joe Surname' = 'Person Three', 
                                'John Doe' = 'Person Four') )

$People_Array->find('John Doe')

Result

array((John Doe = Person One), (John Doe = Person Four))

To find an element in a staticarray of pairs starting at a given offset position

Code

var( People_Array = staticarray('John Doe' = 'Person One',
                                'Jane Doe' = 'Person Two', 
                                'Joe Surname' = 'Person Three', 
                                'John Doe' = 'Person Four') )
