We can check if a specific value is contained in an array using 'X' = ANY(haystack). However, how do I check if an array of integers contains a value that is less than X?, e.g. I want to find all arrays that have at least one value lower than 100.

  • ANY works with arbitrary operators, not just =

Don't know if this is the answer, but one way of doing this is to create a range and then check if they overlap, e.g.

int4range(0, 100, '[]') @> ANY(t2.ages)

This works in cases when dealing with finite numbers, but would not work if ages can contain any negative value.

Update: Never mind, it was just 100 >= ANY(t2.ages).
