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

Peter
