Thanks to Bhuvanesh, I got the package to load (by being explicit about Developer` for those functions, instead of declaring it as Needed in the BeginPackage). So then I discover that Compile no longer works in 6.0 the same as it did in 5.2. I replaced it with Function, modifying the arguments appropriately, and the package works, albeit slower than before. So that's yet another thing that worked just peachy in 5.2, but no longer works in 6.0. I doubt that I have plumbed the depths of the incompatibilities, since the rate of discovery is not decreasing. Mark Adler For the curious, the errors look like: CompiledFunction::cfse: Compiled expression MarsKSAM`Private`base[MarsKSAM`Private`k][-1.05] should be a machine-size real number. More... CompiledFunction::cfex: External evaluation error at instruction 87; proceeding with uncompiled evaluation. More... This all worked perfectly in 5.2.
