%X This paper considers the issues involved in
   translating specifications described in the CSP||B formal
   method into Handel\-C. There have previously been approaches
   to translating CSP descriptions to Handel\-C, and the work
   presented in this paper is part of a programme of work to
   extend it to include the B component of a CSP||B
   description. Handel\-C is a suitable target language because
   of its capability of programming communication and
   state, and its compilation route to hardware. The paper
   presents two case studies that investigate aspects of the
   translation: a buffer case study, and an abstract arbiter
   case study. These investigations have exposed a number of
   issues relating to the translation of the B component, and
   have identified a range of options available, informing more
   recent work on the development of a style for
   CSP||B specifications particularly appropriate to
   translation to Handel\-C.
