|Perhaps, we are encouraged to use the fastest CPUs, like HP 9000/700 or |forthcoming 80586, if we need much more speed-up. It seems to me that Mma needs to have a compiler available to use on finished code for production runs, and to provide compiled rather than interpreted plugin units. Is such a thing in the works? Without that Mma is only useful for preliminary exploration in many problems. It seems unreasonable to have to recode in C or LISP to get the speed needed to explore a problem, and it requires reinventing all of the algorithms already available in Mma. Any prospects from "Wolfram"? -- jmg
