%X This paper reports on a CSP library for C++, developed over
the past yearat the University of Kent. It is based on the
OO\-design and API of JCSP and thelightweight algorithms of
KRoC occam, with extensions to exploit specific C++
capabilities(such as templates). Both user\-level and
operating system threads are usedto provide a range of
implementation options and semantics (e.g. for managing
blockingsystem calls intelligently) that run efficiently
under eitherWindows or Linux. Thelibrary is presented from
the user’s point of view, mainly by way of a tutorial.
Implementationdetails are also outlined and some benchmark
results given. The performanceof C++CSP is between that of
KRoC occam and JCSP — fairly close toKRoC.
