%X Progress has been made in providing a reasonable distributed
   implementation of the occam language. Primarily, this has
   involved the development of a routing kernel with a latent
   channel connection retaining occam syntax. Channel semantics
   are maintained by a message acknowledgement scheme and
   unrestricted message lengths. This provides the user with
   the potential for fully connected process communication
   without restrictions on node valencies or explicit PLACEment
   of any hard links.In addition the user program has been
   severed from any dependency on the topology by allowing
   multiple configuration level PROCESSORS to map onto a single
   transputer. Thus the user code can be run on any network
   which has been configured for the virtual channel
   router.Further development of the system has allowed us to
   implement the dynamic primitives that will be required by a
   compiler for distributed full occam. These include dynamic
   channel creation, remote procedure calls and facilities for
   moving channel ends.
