GNU Guile-RPC is an implementation of ONC RPC and XDR (standardized as RFC 1831 and RFC 4506) in Guile Scheme, and for use by GNU Guile programs. ONC RPC is the ``Open Network Computing'' Remote Procedure Call protocol, allowing programs to invoke procedures of programs running on remote machines. XDR is the underlying binary data representation format.


GNU Guile-RPC is available from ftp.gnu.org (consider using a mirror for higher bandwidth.)


The manual is available on-line, as is documentation for most GNU software. You may also find more information about Guile-RPC by running info guile-rpc.
