If i use you example I get an error message at the point where the function is supposed to return the Array. That error says "Invalid array access"

You cannot return an "Array". The example is flawed. It would make more sense like this:

void myFunction( double &theArray[] )
   for( int i = 0; i < ArraySize( theArray ); i++ )
      theArray[ i ] = i + 10;

Please note however, that the array is passed by reference, so that the original array is being directly modified!

If you need to keep the original and the "returned array" separate, you will have to make a copy of it before calling the function.
