In computer science, a remote procedure call (RPC) is an inter-process communication that allows a computer program to cause a subroutine or procedure to execute in another address space (commonly on another computer on a shared network) without the programmer explicitly coding the details for this remote interaction. That is, the programmer writes essentially the same code whether the subroutine is local to the executing program, or remote. When the software in question uses object-oriented principles, RPC is called remote invocation or remote method invocation.
Many different (often incompatible) technologies can be used to implement the concept.

Famous quotes containing the words remote and/or layer:
“Oh! what a poor thing is human life in its best enjoyments!subjected to imaginary evils when it has no real ones to disturb it! and that can be made as effectually unhappy by its apprehensions of remote contingencies as if it was struggling with the pains of a present distress!”
—Samuel Richardson (16891761)
“This world is run by people who know how to do things. They know how things work. They are equipped. Up there, theres a layer of people who run everything. But wewere just peasants. We dont understand whats going on, and we cant do anything.”
—Doris Lessing (b. 1919)
