[SciPy-user] execute function on an array elementwise

Hi all,

I guess this is an easy one, but can't seem to find it. Suppose I have
this function:

def myFunction(x):
  result = None
  if x > 3:
    result = "some value"
    result = "another value"
  return result

And I want to run it on an array a:
b = myFunction(a)

which then returns an array with "some value" and "another value". I
could loop over the array, but I guess there's a better way to do
this? (something like arrayMagic from Matlab if I'm not mistaken.

thanks a lot,
