Hi,
using Oleks Internal`Bag suggestion, think of a list as a bag of numbers
and you can use this as replacement for the lists in your compile. Using
Oleks append-to version as comparison
appendTo =
Compile[{{k, _Integer, 0}},
Module[{mat = {{0, 0}}, i = 0},
For[i = 1, i <= k, i++, AppendTo[mat, {1, i}]];
Rest[mat]]]
and here is the Internal`Bag implementation
AppendTo[$ContextPath, "Internal`"];
appendBag = Compile[{{k, _Integer}},
Module[{p = Bag[], i = 1, tmpBag},
For[i = 1, i <= k, ++i,
tmpBag = Bag[];
StuffBag[tmpBag, 1];
StuffBag[tmpBag, i];
StuffBag[p, tmpBag];
];
Table[BagPart[BagPart[p, i], All], {i, k}]
]
];
Speedtest shows
In[55]:= First /@ {AbsoluteTiming[appendTo[10^5]],
AbsoluteTiming[appendBag[10^5]]}
Out[55]= {14.559237, 0.149063}
that the bag implementation is about 100 times faster. Unfortunately
there doesn't exist much documantation about this. One place to look is
here http://stackoverflow.com/a/6795762/1078614 where Daniel gives some
insights into the usage.
Hope this helps.
Cheers
Patrick
