## Are Some Values True?

### Description

Given a set of logical vectors, are any of the values true?

### Usage

any(..., na.rm = FALSE)

### Arguments

`...` |
one or more logical vectors. Other objects are coerced in
a similar way as `as.logical.default` . |

`na.rm` |
logical. If true `NA` values are removed before
the result is computed. |

### Details

This is a generic function: methods can be defined for it
directly or via the `Summary`

group generic.

### Value

Given a sequence of logical arguments, a logical value indicating
whether or not any of the elements of `x`

are `TRUE`

.

The value returned is `TRUE`

if any the values in `x`

are `TRUE`

, and `FALSE`

if all the values in `x`

are `FALSE`

.

If `na.rm = FALSE`

and `x`

consists of a mix of `FALSE`

and `NA`

values, the value is `NA`

.

### Note

Prior to **R** 2.1.0, only `NULL`

and logical, integer, numeric
and complex vectors were accepted.
