# search()

The search method searches the collection for the given value and returns its key if found. If the item is not found, false is returned.

const collection = collect([2, 4, 6, 8]);


// 1

The search is done using a "loose" comparison, meaning a string with an integer value will be considered equal to an integer of the same value. To use strict comparison, pass true as the second argument to the method:

collection.search('4', true);

// false

Alternatively, you may pass in your own callback to search for the first item that passes your truth test:

collection.search((item, key) => item > 5);

// 2
