CompiledFunction[args, argregs, nregs, instr, func]
represents compiled code for evaluating a compiled function.
  • args is a list giving a pattern for the type of each argument to the function. The types are specified as in Compile.
  • argregs is a list of the registers into which actual argument values should be placed to evaluate the compiled code.
  • nregs is a list of the numbers of logical, integer, real, complex and tensor registers required in evaluating the compiled code.
  • instr is a list of actual compiled code instructions.
  • func is a Mathematica pure function to be used if no result can be obtained from the compiled code for any reason.
  • CompiledFunction objects that are constructed explicitly can also be executed. Basic consistency checks are done when such objects are first evaluated by Mathematica.
  • The code in a CompiledFunction object is based on an idealized register machine.
