So what I wanna do now is of course analyze where these errors come from. Unfortunately Mathematica Frontend just tells me the kind of error and what variables are involved. Due to my code being pretty large, it's no easy task to figure out where these errors in deed appear. <snip> By "errors", do you mean you get any error messages of the form CompiledFunction::error_code:error_text For instance, CompiledFunction::cfsa: Argument 1+u at position 1 should be a \ machine-size real number. CompiledFunction::cfn: Numerical error encountered at instruction 2; \ proceeding with uncompiled evaluation. From my experience, the most current kinds of error that people encounter when compiling some working-as-expected-before-compilation code are: . wrong expectations about Compile: not every function is compilable and successfully compiled code does not systematically translate as speed improvement . wrong format for input variables and/or output results returned by intermediate calls Regards, -- Jean-Marc
