DESCRIPTION

       This  package provides a single command for use within snit type definition (i.e. actually
       a snit::macro) for the convenient creation of methods which delegate the actual work to  a
       remote location via a "channel" created by the package comm.

API

       ::interp::delegate::method ?-async? name arguments comm id
              This  commands  creates  a  method  which is named by name. All invokations of this
              method will delegate the actual work to the remote location identified by the  comm
              channel comm and the endpoint id.

              The  name of the remote method invoked by the delegator is identical to the name of
              the method itself.

              Normally the generated method marshalls the arguments, and returns the result  from
              the  remote  method  as  its own result. If however the option -async was specified
              then the generated method will not wait for a result and return immediately.
