Re: Pattern to match element in nested list


data = {{"Smith, Tim", 3}, {"Wheres,Waldo", 4},
   {"Muffet, LilMiss", 0}, {"Brown, Charlie", 1},
   {"X, Doctor", 0}};

Cases[data, {_, 0}]

{{"Muffet, LilMiss", 0}, {"X, Doctor", 0}}

Select[data, Last[#] == 0 &]

{{"Muffet, LilMiss", 0}, {"X, Doctor", 0}}

data /. {_, _?Positive} :> Sequence[]

{{"Muffet, LilMiss", 0}, {"X, Doctor", 0}}

DeleteCases[data, {_, _?Positive}]

{{"Muffet, LilMiss", 0}, {"X, Doctor", 0}}

Pick[data, data[[All, 2]], 0]

{{"Muffet, LilMiss", 0}, {"X, Doctor", 0}}
