The transport-independent RPC (TI-RPC) routines provide the developer with stratified levels of access to the transport layer. The highest-level routines provide complete abstraction from the transport and provide true transport-independence. Lower levels provide access levels similar to the TI-RPC of previous releases.
This section is an informal guide to porting transport-specific RPC (TS-RPC) applications to TI-RPC. Table 6-1 shows the differences between selected routines and their counterparts. For information on porting issues concerning sockets and transport layer interface (TLI), see the Programming Interfaces Guide.
