  abstract= "CSP, Hoare's Communicating Sequential Processes, is a formal
     language for specifying, implementing and reasoning about
     concurrent processes and their interactions. Existing
     software tools that deal with CSP directly are largely
     concerned with assisting formal proofs. This paper presents
     an alternative use for CSP, namely the compilation of CSP
     systems to executable code. Themain motivation for this work
     is in providing a means to experimentwith relatively large
     CSP systems, possibly consisting millions of concurrent
     processes - something that is hard to achieve with the tools
     currently available."
