A system for making procedure calls can be used with a network of computers. An application program on a local node calls a desired library procedure. The library procedure can be available on the local node or a remote node, and the location need not be known by the application. If the library procedure is available on a remote node, a remote router procedure communicates a procedure identifier to the remote node. The procedure is executed, and any results are returned to the locol node, to be returned to the application program.
