%X The TMS320C40 (\[rs]C40) is a transputer\-like parallel
processor from Texas Instruments. It is an order of
magnitude faster than the T800 transputer. Parallel C is a
popular programming environment for the transputer. The
properties of both the \[rs]C40 and Parallel C are described
and the significant differences between the \[rs]C40 and the
transputer are pointed out. The techniques used to overcome
these obstacles to porting Parallel C are presented. These
include building a new real\-time kernel and reusing
existing software packages from industry and academia. The
suitability of the \[rs]C40 for parallel applications is
