I was thinking along the same lines. This should work well as long

as the only consequence when the function "fails" is bad values at

appropriate array positions.

However, if "fails" means other side effects, such as crashing or

excessive run time, then something else will be needed. You could

stuff safe fake values into appropriate input positions, according

to test masks. That should be fairly easy.

Or you could use something to control iteration, such as explicit do

loops and if statements; or use ndtooned, ind, ind_resolve, etc. to

compute only at good array positions.

"Where" in Fortran masks iteration. "Where" in NCL controls only

the merging of two array results, *not* their evaluation.
