The ParaPhrase Refactoring Tool for Erlang (PaRTE) provides automatic, comprehensive and reliable pattern candidate discovery to locate parallelisable components in Erlang programs. It uses semi-automatic and semantics-preserving program transformations to reshape source code and to introduce high level parallel patterns that can be mapped adaptively to the available hardware resources. This paper describes the main PaRTE tools and demonstrates that significant parallel speedups can be obtained.
