9.1 The REMOTE Package

The remote package provides simple RPC facility including interfaces for creating servers, connecting to already existing servers, and calling functions in other Lisp processes. The routines for establishing a connection between two processes, create-request-server and connect-to-remote-server, return wire structures. A wire maintains the current state of a connection, and all the RPC forms require a wire to indicate where to send requests.
