Describe Applications with CAL Actor Language

Applications described with CAL Actor Language (CAL) can now be imported into Preesm through the Open-RVC-CAL Compiler (Orcc). To do so, applications are compiled using the “Embedded C” backend of Orcc. This compilation process takes as inputs the CAL description of the actors and a network of instances of these actors. This compilation process produces a C source code file for each actor and an algorithm graph equivalent to the input network.
Only applications with a Synchronous Data-Flow behavior will pass the compilation process. An example of application is available here.
