%X CSP, Hoare\[rs]s Communicating Sequential Processes, is a
   formal language for specifying, implementing and reasoning
   about concurrent processes and their interactions. Existing
   software tools that deal with CSP directly are largely
   concerned with assisting formal proofs. This paper presents
   an alternative use for CSP, namely the compilation of CSP
   systems to executable code. Themain motivation for this work
   is in providing a means to experimentwith relatively large
   CSP systems, possibly consisting millions of concurrent
   processes \- something that is hard to achieve with the
   tools currently available.
