%X This paper investigates the feasibility of developing a CSP
to Python translator using a concurrent framework for
Python. The objective of this translation framework,
developed under the name of Hydra, is to produce a tool that
helps programmers implement concurrent software easily using
CSP algorithms. This objective was achieved using the ANTLR
compiler generator tool, Python Remote Objects and PyCSP.
The resulting Hydra prototype takes an algorithm defined in
CSP, parses and converts it to Python and then executes the
program using multiple instances of the Python interpreter.
Testing has revealed that the Hydra prototype appears to
function correctly, allowing simultaneous process execution.
Therefore, it can be concluded that converting CSP to Python
using a concurrent framework such as Hydra is both
possible and adds flexibility to CSP with embedded Python
