```Hi All,
the trouble seems to be that only numerical arrays are allowed inside a
compiled function.
The Mathematica book, chapter 2.6.15 gives a hint:

Compile nevertheless also allows integers, complex numbers and logical
variables (True or False), as well as arrays of numbers.

Sincerely, Daniel
