COMPILATION OF ROUTINES USING LISTS OF REALS

Is it possible to improve the speed of Mathematica for number crunching by
compiling routines using lists of real numbers?  It works fine for
variables representing single numbers, but doesn't like a list of reals. 
Any advice?

   Also, I have a question about disk read time. Reading lists of numbers
from an ascii file is painfully slow by any standatd (on a Powerbook
170).  Is there anything that can be done about this?

Thanks
