numarray - use of fromfunction

I'm using numarray to deal with arrays of values in python.
In particular, I'm interested in the fromfunction facility, which lets
you define an array in terms of a function on its coordinates, like this:

def dist(x,y):
return (x-5)**2+(y-5)**2 # distance from (5,5) squared

m = fromfunction(di st, (10,10))
print m
Question is: is there any way to define my function such that it refers
to some values in a different array (or an 'old' copy of this one,
before all the new values are applied)?
For example, suppose I want the array integer at (x, y) to have the
value of value(x-1, y-1)*2 (i.e. 2 times the value to the 'top left'),
is there a way to do this?

I tried to initialize a float point array by: import numarray xur = numarray.fromfunction(lambda x,y,z:x*y*z, (2, 2, 2)) but I ended up with an integer array even though x, y, and z are all floats. BTW, how do you unzip NumTut in windows? And is there a newer version? Thank you

I'd like to subclass numarray's array. I'd like to add some methods and override others like __init__. I don't know how to do this and haven't found help searching the manual or the web, can someone help?

Hello- I have a function to generate a multi-dimensional array, which then gets summed over one axis. The problem is that the dimensions are large, and I run out of memory when I create the entire array, so I'm trying to do the sum *within* the function. Example-- variables x,y,z,t; dimensions numX, numY, numZ, numT; functions...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
