%X At Manchester we have a rack of Transputers that we use for
research into parallel architectures[CGK86,AEK89]. These
architectures are investigated by simulation, and some
experience of this has already been gained. Currently,
simulations are written in occam and drive the rack
directly; a coding process that is rather slow, error prone
and requires particular knowledge of the Manchester rack.We
intend to provide a higher level environment that allows a
more rapid and secure development to be achieved. As occam
has been found to be a natural and flexible medium for
expressing functional simulations, it has been retained in
preference to a dedicated simulation language. The tools
discussed in this paper are therefore applicable to occam
programming generally, and will be used for the development
of applications other than simulation.
