many ways

try,


~> my_array.index "five"
=> nil

~> my_array.include? "five"
=> false

~> my_array.any?{|e| e== "five"}
=> false

i like index since it's fast and it also returns the position if
found. wish include? would do that too.

anyway, all of those meth  above has its unique advantage though. eg,
with any?, you can do fancy search...
