Thanks everybody for the different solutions proposed, I really appreciate. What about this solution? So simple that I didn't think to it...
import numpy as np from numpy import *
def f(arr): return arr*2
a = array( [1,1,1] ) b = array( [2,2,2] ) c = array( [3,3,3] ) d = array( [4,4,4] )
for x in (a,b,c,d): x[:] = x[:]*2 #instead of: x = x*2
print a print b print c print d --
