  abstract= "A problem that occurs frequently during the development of
     parallel programs is deadlock.In the domain of transputer
     technology (and of parallel computing in general) run time
     debugging software still is a problem. This increases the
     value of verification tools based on static analysis, even
     if the functionality is sometimes limited.In this paper we
     present our approach to static analysis. The analyzer
     reduces an occam program to the relevant actions hi the
     context of this problem (communication, possibly through
     guards: PAR constructions...), and subsequently examines the
     program, reporting possible problems that could occur during
     real execution. The tool goes beyond the purpose of
     detecting deadlocks only: other infinite wait situations are
     also reported."
