We have written the Transterpreter, a virtual machine for executing the transputer instruction set. This interpreter is a small, portable, and extensible run-time, intended to be easily ported to handheld computers, mobile phones, and other embedded contexts. In striving for this level of portability, occam programs compiled to Transputer byte-code can currently be run on desktop computers, handhelds, and even the LEGO Mindstorms robotics kit.
