%X PIERS is a deadlock free virtual routing system developed
for distributed concurrent applications. It deliberately
exploits the advantages gained by allowing cycles to occur
in the channel dependency graph and incorporates the cycles
into the routing algorithm. It directly interfaces with the
user\[rs]s application and uses the existing OCCAM channel
primitives. The paper describes how this cyclic
routingalgorithm operates and how deadlock is averted. It
describes how the routing system is implemented, presents
the performance figures obtained and summarises the network
configuration utility written to integrate the communication
harness with the user\[rs]s application.
