    The occam programming language, based on the CSP formal algebra and tied to a specific hardware platform (transputers), offered a structured way to organize concurrency. The CT library [1], developed at University of Twente, inspired by occam is a kernel library implementing occam primitives in modern programming languages and for general purpose microprocessors. In this paper, a practical implementation of the CT library is explained and some aspects are compared to similar occam-like library developed at the University of Kent. The design of the CT-library internals is then revisited and proposed changes are implemented in the C++ version of the library.
