```Hi,
cAlongAway =
Compile[{{tip, _Real, 1}, {end, _Real, 1}, {calc, _Real, 1}},
Module[{mid, r, theta},
mid = (tip + end)/2;
r = Sqrt[Dot[calc - mid, calc - mid]];
theta = VectorAngle[calc - mid, end - mid];
{r Cos[theta], r Sin[theta]}]]

??
but you see when you look ino the compiled code
there is still the call to VectorAngle[] and usual such
a call degrade the execution speed of the
compiled function.

Regards
Jens
