For a case-insensitive test use count: {_x == "lol"} count ["Lol", "LOL", "loL"]; //returns 3. Checking if an array (for example a position) is in another array doesn't produce an error, but it will always return false. e.g. [0,0,0] in [[0,0,0],[1,4,3],[5,3,1]]; //returns: false.

As of Arma 3 1.26: [0,0,0] in [[0,0,0],[1,4,3],[5,3,1]]; //returns true [1,2,3] in [[1,2,3],[4,5,6]]; //returns true Assuming it is now using comparison as found in isEqualTo

The Object syntax of in might not behave as you'd expect (e.g. it would always return true) when both parameters are the same object . It serves as a quick method of checking if a unit is mounted: private _onFoot = _unit in _unit;
