Compiled Types

The Wolfram Compiler provides advanced compilation capabilities to process an increasingly wide range of Wolfram Language code into native machine code. A key part of this process is type inferencing. This uses minimal type annotations to determine types for entire functions and groups of functions.

Declaring Compiled Types

TypeDeclaration a declaration of a product, abstract, macro or alias type

CompiledExpressionDeclaration a declaration of type representing an expression

Using Compiled Types

Typed specify a type for a program element such as a function argument

TypeSpecifier create a compound type such as a packed array

FunctionCompile compile Wolfram Language code into optimized machine code
