The csp2B Tool

The csp2B tool provides a means of combining CSP-like descriptions with standard B specifications. The notation of CSP provides a convenient way of describing the order in which the operations of a B machine may occur. The function of the tool is to convert CSP-like specifications into standard machine-readable B specifications which means that they may be animated and appropriate proof obligations may be generated. Use of csp2B means that abstract specifications and refinements may be specified purely using CSP or using a combination of CSP and B.


The tool is written in MoscowML and you will need the MoscowML compiler to install it.
