Hi,
I have an array called @data.

In this array, I am looking for $line.

How can I find the the indice number of the array that has $line in it in an efficient way?

Thanks,

use List::MoreUtils qw(indexes first_index);

my @list = (1, 4, 3, 2, 4, 6);

my $first_index = first_index {/4/} @list;
my @all_indexes = indexes {/4/} @list;

print "first index:$first_index\n";
print "all indexes:@all_indexes\n";
