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


	function any(
		logical_array : logical


A logical array of any dimension.


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.
