%X The development of a PowerPC port of the KRoC (portable
occam compiler) is described. As well as the basic port, a
multiprocessor run time system provides services for user
programs, including efficient occam channels between
distributed processes, natural access to host file systems
and TCP/IP network sockets. Optimization of target assembly
code is discussed, with methods for removing the
inefficiencies introduced by the KRoC translation process.
