Hello

You can do it with list List Comprehensions:

BigList = ['Jean', 'Eric', 'Remy', 'Anne', 'Denis', 'Alain', 'Armel',
'Louis']
SmallList = ['Eric', 'Denis', 'Georges', 'Jean']

if ( [x for x in SmallList if x in BigList] == SmallList ):
   print "They were found"
else:
   print "They are not in list"


[x for x in SmallList if x in BigList] evaluates to a list with common
elements of SmallList and BigList
