It's me, the original poster of the thread. I have discovered that when the Mathematica book tells one to declare the return type of all built-in functions, when the intended type differs from approximate (scalar) Real (the default), it means so. For instance, since I'm expecting a 1D list of integers back from Range[], I must declare it at the trailing section of Compile[], per: {Range[_,_], _Integer,1}. Also, it appears necessary to do so, even for subtle expression forms such as indices[[m,1]], which in FullForm is Part[indices,m,1]. Hence: {Part[indices,_,_], _Integer}. I have found some true bugs with Compile[] in Version 3 beta, but this set of problems I was having is certainly not among them. Frank J.
