# any

This function returns the scalar value True if any of the values of its
parameter are True.

## Synopsis

function any(
logical_array : logical
)

## Arguments

*logical_array*
- A logical array of any dimension.

## Description

The **any** function returns a single logical scalar value if any of the non-missing value elements of the *logical_array* parameter are True, or can be evaluated as True. This function is useful for changing multidimensional results from
logical expressions into a single scalar value, which is required by
the if statement. All numeric values can be coerced to a logical value.
Values that are 0 are interpreted as False and values that are non-zero are interpreted as True.
