[Numpy-discussion] easy way to change part of only unmasked elements value?

Hi Chao,

If you don't mind modifying masked values, then if you write to the
underlying ndarray it won't touch the mask:

>>> a = np.ma.masked_less(np.arange(10),5)
>>> a.base[3:6] = 1
>>> a
masked_array(data = [-- -- -- -- -- 1 6 7 8 9],
             mask = [ True  True  True  True  True False False False False
False],
       fill_value = 999999)

Regards,
Richard Hattersley
