I just figured out that in BASH you cannot export an array to make it  
visible for subshells.

Any suggestions how to deal with this?

One chance would be instead of making a BASH array to create a string  
variable which is certain structure. Then you have to split this  
variable in BASH, perl, ruby, etc by hand.
An other chance would be to create n+1 variables, i.e if you have an  
array TMD_output=("A" "b" "c and d") you could generate
TMD_output_0=3    # how many items
TMD_output_3="c and d"
