NeXeme: A distributed scheme based on Nexus. The remote service request, a form of remote procedure call, and the global pointer, a global naming mechanism, are two features at the heart of Nexus, a library for building distributed systems. NeXeme is an extension of Scheme that fully integrates both concepts in a mostly-functional framework, hence providing an expressive language for distributed computing. This paper presents a semantics for this Scheme extension, and also describes a NeXeme implementation, including its distributed garbage collector.
