which is optimized to minimize run-time costs. More information on

LDOS HTML Interface Info
You probably got here via a request form generated by the HTML
Interface of some Lightweight Distributed Object (LDOS.) The HTML
interface translates between HTML forms and the "StreamCall" interface
of LDOS objects. This is a very inefficient way to access these objects,
but it lets you use a conventional web browser to invoke methods on
an LDOS object.
Here is an example form generated by the LDOS HTML interface:
The title of the form, "Interface Accumulate" in this example,
indicates the interface (the public, exported methods) of the class of
the object you are talking to. Each method is represented by a table
named by the method ("Method add"), buttons to invoke the method
("Submit Query") and reset the form ("Reset"), and the types and
direction of any arguments to the method ("IN UINT", "OUT UINT").
After a method is invoked, you will receive a page confirming your
invocation which will list the output values of any OUT or INOUT tagged
arguments. For example:
add_1 = 2
