indexOf

indexOf(value) -> position

Returns the position of the first occurrence of the argument within the array. If the argument doesn’t exist in the array, returns -1.

Note: this uses the == equivalence operator, not the === strict equality operator. The bottom example below illustrates this.

Minor note: this uses a plain old optimized indexing loop, so there’s no risk of extensions being detected by this method.

Example


[3, 5, 6, 1, 20].indexOf(1)
// -> 3

[3, 5, 6, 1, 20].indexOf(90)
// -> -1

[0, false, 15].indexOf(false)
// -> 0 instead of 1, because 0 == false!
