Note: if you are not using purely whole numbers, then please read http://matlab.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#Why_is_0.3_-_0.2_-_0.1_.28or_similar.29_not_equal_to_zero.3F

Note: later versions of MATLAB added ismembertol() for dealing with floating point numbers.

A = floor(rand(100, 100) * 1000);
contains5 = any(A(:) == 5);
If the array is large and the searched element is found early, Matlab wastes a lot of time by searching the rest of the array. Then this C-Mex is faster: FEX: anyEq.

- Compile the code at the command line:
mex anyEq.c -largeArrayDims
- Use the function like any other function. For help on syntax,
