I will try to summarize all types of multivalues:
any_of ( s ) <PRED> x > is true if one or more elements of s satisfy
the test "element <PRED> x"
all_of( s ) <PRED> x > is true all elements of s satisfy the test
"element <PRED> x"
none_of( s ) <PRED> x > negation of any_of( a ): is false if one ore
more elements of s satisfy[...]
???_of( s ) <PRED> x> negation of all_of( a ) ( in my implementation
not_all_of( a ) ): is false if all elements of s satisfy[...]. This is
still missing in your implementation. Your implementation of not_all is
the negation of any_of.
one_of( s ) <PRED> x > is true if exact one element of s statisfy[...]
n_of( n, s ) <PRED> x > is true if exact n elements of s satisfy[...]
some_of( n, m, s ) <PRED> x > is true if more than n and less than m+1
elements of s satisfy[...]
From your description of each_of: Your implementation of all_of() is
correct. I'm right? And each_of needs to refactored?

Ok you're right.

Ok, good idea. And as I said in my private mail, I will rework my
pdffile next weekend.

I aggree.
