Hi,

MatchQ[#, 1 | 0] & /@ {0, 1, 2, 3}

??

| What's the easiest way to match exactly zero or 
one expressions within,
| say, MatchQ[ ]?
|
| For example: call any expression expr a 
well-formed foo when and only
| when (1) the head of expr equals foo; (2) the 
first element of expr is
| either 0 or 1 bar expressions; (3) the last 
element of expr is an
| integer. Then neither the  predicate ...
|
|   FooQ[expr_] := MatchQ[expr, foo[_bar, 
_Integer]]
|
| ... nor ...
|
|   FooQ[expr_] := MatchQ[expr, foo[__bar, 
_Integer]]
|
| ... nor ...
|
|   FooQ[expr_] := MatchQ[expr, foo[___bar, 
_Integer]]
|
| ... accurately capture the definition of foo.
|
| For string-matching there's the ? operator; but 
what's the best
| approach for expression-matching?
|
| (FWIW Gavin Scott posed this question in 
December 2000, but I couldn't
| find an answer in the thread.)
