    EXPOSE is an animation tool for process-oriented formal specifications of concurrent systems. EXPOSE takes an input the text of a formal specification and, from it, generates static views (interpretations) of the specification structure and dynamic views of the behaviour of the system specified. The views are constructed and explored using the hypermedia facilities of the Apple Macintosh HyperCard system. EXPOSE has been implemented experimentally for LOTOS, but most of the animation concepts and techniques described are relevant to other process-oriented languages, such as CCS and CSP.
