ABSTRACT
<p>A brief overview precedes ten separate tool reviews. Five of the tools address the problems of performance analysis, testing, and debugging in a multiple-CPU environment. The first set of tools-Graspin PPSE, and Integral-supports this activity by providing specification or design languages for concurrent applications. The next pair of tools-Pie and Total-supports the development of multiple-CPU software by representing the software's behavior in a parallel or concurrent environment. The next set of five tools is aimed at the problem of serial-to-parallel conversions. The first three tools-E/SP, Mimdizer, and PRETS-recapture the design of the original source code and display it in a graphical form for analysis. The remaining tools-Pat and Aspar-support direct source-to-source transformations. These ten tools are representative of current approaches being taken to address the problem of multiple-CPU computing.</p>
