If the Mathematica code involves specialized Mathematica functions, they will not be converted to C++ nor is it reasonable to expect this. >My Mathematica program is fast but unfortunately too slow for some >expansions.

Any compiled code that is appropriately optimized and debugged with optimal algorithms can be expected to run faster than Mathematica. But converting Mathematica code to something that is optimal and can be compiled is far from a trivial task. If you've no experience with C++, it is quite unlikely you will be able to achieve the improvement you desire. It is far more likely, in the time it takes you to get the code sufficiently well optimized, debugged and compiled in C++, Mathematica could have solved the original problem. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
