None of the responses so far actually give you what you asked for, as
they assume you didn't mean 'array' but meant 'list.' I suspect they're
right, but here's an approach for array.array.
If you really want a multiprocess.Array, or numpy's array, please say
so, and somebody'll tell you how to put random numbers in one of them.
floats = (random.random() * 5 for _ in xrange(100))
data = array.array('d', floats)
