Re: Compiling numerical iterations

Compiling functions with Complie[{...},...] was once ago (I think version 5 or earlier) interesting for simple problems. Complex algorithmen was always useless to compile.
For versions ealier then 5 it was a nice approach to write small c programs for small modules:

Today it only interesting exporting your results to c so it can be integrated into a softwar, that runs outside a Mathematica workplace.
Kind regards from
