I have a dataa mining progrram whose speed is essential. I am constantly modifying it so I've never compiled it. Will compilling the progrram make it run faster?

Hi migit03,

A compiled program should always run faster than an interpreted program. What programming language are you using? It's probably an interpreted language since you have never needed to compile before.

I'm using Vb 6.0 sorry should have said that....I'm used to old EE.
Do you know how much faster it will run? 1.5x, 2x?
I've tried tightening the code...What i really need is a super computer. :)

I'm guessing you're talking about compiling into native code since VB is compiled by default?

has some information on it.
