Hello, I need help for three things: 1) are there any tips for operating with large lists/matrices (in the order of 512*512 or so) and 2) is it possible to thread a compiled function over several lists. 3) is there any way to "intertwine" two lists? i.e., if a and b are lists, is there a simple way to make a list that is {a[[1]], b[[1]],a[[2]],b[[2]],...}? Thanks for any and all help. --Jonathan Lee ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
