Description

Class (({XMLRPC::Client})) provides remote procedure calls to a XML-RPC server. After setting the connection-parameters with ((<XMLRPC::Client.new>)) which creates a new (({XMLRPC::Client})) instance, you can execute a remote procedure by sending the ((<call|XMLRPC::Client#call>)) or ((<call2|XMLRPC::Client#call2>)) message to this new instance. The given parameters indicate which method to call on the remote-side and of course the parameters for the remote procedure.
