Abstract

   XML-RPC is an Extensible Markup Language-Remote Procedure Calling
   protocol that works over the Internet.  It defines an XML format for
   messages that are transfered between clients and servers using HTTP.
   An XML-RPC message encodes either a procedure to be invoked by the
   server, along with the parameters to use in the invocation, or the
   result of an invocation.  Procedure parameters and results can be
   scalars, numbers, strings, dates, etc.; they can also be complex
   record and list structures.

   This document specifies a how to use the Blocks Extensible Exchange
   Protocol (BEEP) to transfer messages encoded in the XML-RPC format
   between clients and servers.
