Hi, > The errors I get are Compile::cif errors. I don't know of a way to directly get information during runtime from within a CompiledFunction (except using Print of course...), but for the case of Compile::cif it should be relativley easy to extract the parts that cause problems when beeing compiled by looking at the Inputform of the resulting CompiledFunction: Compile[{{x, _Real, 1}, {y, _Real, 2}, {t, True | False}}, If[t, x, y]] // InputForm If something could not be compiled that part of the code is contained within the compiled code like here: CompiledFunction[{{_Real, 1}, {_Real, 2}, True | False}, {{3, 1, 0}, {3, 2, 1}, {1, 0, 0}, {3, 0, 0}}, {1, 0, 1, 0, 2}, {{1, 5}, {54, Function[{x, y, t}, If[t, x, y]], 3, 1, 0, 3, 2, 1, 1, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0}, {2}}, Function[{x, y, t}, If[t, x, y]], Evaluate] so in this case you can see that it is the If that causes the error. Of course this approach might be uncomfortable if your compiled function is huge, but you can then use Mathematica's pattern matching to extract those parts within the compiled function that have not been compiled... hth, albert
