@WinstonEwert as of version 8, Mathematica can be compiled down to machine code which is dynamically linked into the kernel by setting the option CompilationTarget -> "C" on Compile.

comment File shredder algorithm
@MSalters, yes the entire grain points in one direction, but the quantization axis may differ from grain to grain, inducing some variation. This would be affected by thermal fluctuations, magnetic fluctuations from the read head passing over, or a neighboring grain being flipped.

I've also heard it called "execute around block/pattern/idiom" or "resource acquisition is initialization." It shows up in a lot of places. I've used it Mathematica.
