Please correct me if I’ve concluded it incorrectly. For an empty list: “any” is always False “all” is always True “none” is always True

Yep. It's the concept of vacuous truth

1. `any()`: Returns
True
if at least one element in the iterable is true. For an empty iterable, it returns
False
. 2. `all()`: Returns
True
if all elements in the iterable are true. For an empty iterable, it indeed returns
True
. 3.
none
is not a built-in function in Python Kotlin (since version 1.0). If you're referring to a function that would return
True
if no elements in an iterable are true (i.e., the opposite of
any()
any(emptylist) -> false all->true none-> !any -> true

why mention Python? these are all Kotlin extension functions
the docs give examples on empty collections as well

On the off chance that that message was AI-generated, at least make sure you mention the language of interest in your prompt, and read over the message before you post it. There's nothing in the Kotlin Slack's rules against AI-generated anything, but just try to make it helpful

this isn't in the rules but I would prefer a stronger statement: unless you can validate its accuracy, don't share AI-generated content. otherwise, you're not adding any value over the asker using the same tool themselves.

Yeah just try to be mindful of the contents of the response itself and how relevant it is. I'm all in favour of using AI as a communication aid and to speed up writing, as long as the content itself is still factual and relevant
