Hi all,

This is the first time I post here.
I would like to know if anybody has used Mathematica to make a fast 
program as is done in Fortran or C. I have read that the time of 
computation  is similar for  C and Mathematica  when you use compiled 
Is this correct or Fortran and C are much faster than Mathematica ?  (of
course it is when you use real number and not infinite precision...)
This is my big problem with Mathematica: It is too slow !!

Thanks for all,
