Check if item is in an array

If I've got an array of strings, can I check to see if a string is in the array without doing a

for
loop? Specifically, I'm looking for a way to do it within an
if
statement, so something like this:

if [check that item is in array]:

Answer

Assuming you mean "list" where you say "array", you can do

if item in my_list:
    # whatever
