DESCRIPTION

       This  package  provides  a  single command for the convenient creation of procedures which
       delegate the actual work to a remote location via a "channel" created by the package comm.

API

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

              The name of the remote procedure invoked by the delegator is [namespace tail name].
              I.e., namespace information is stripped from the call.

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