Kent Retargettable Occam Compiler

The Kent Retargettable Occam Compiler is a multi-platform Occam 2.1 compiler that is designed to allow the Occam programming language to be used on non-Transputer platforms. Extensions from a subset of the Occam 3 specification and from pi calculus have been added over time. As a result, the version of the language supported by the compiler is also sometimes referred to as Occam 2.5 or Occam-pi.
