some — Returns true if at least one item of given sequence
matches given criterion.
boolean some (
varname string ,
test_set sequence ,
The function creates a temporary local variable, whose name is
specified by varname
argument. Then, for every item of test_set sequence it calculates the
expression having set the created variable to that "current" item.
If the value of expression is true, the function immediately
returns true without processing the rest of test_set sequence. If all items of
the sequence are probed without getting true, false is returned.
(So if the sequence is empty, the function returns false).
In any case, temporary variable is destroyed on return.
This function is used in the implementation of "SOME" logical
operator in XQUERY, so you will probably use that operator in
XQUERY expressions, not the function. This function may be useful
in XPATH expressions and in XSLT stylesheets. It is not a part of
library of standard XQUERY 1.0 functions.
