```And is it possible to apply a specific operation with a condition
(if). I have to apply different operations on the same array depending
on the value of the array element.

For example: I have an array like that:

[100  250  501  700] and I want to multiply by 100 the value if this
value is smalest thant 500 and multiply by 1000 if the value is
bigest.
