A stub generator for marshalling the arguments and results of remote procedure calls in heterogeneous environments is presented. The stub generator is itself language and machine independent, and derives all its knowledge of source languages and machine types from a set of language and machine specifications. These specifications can be paired in any combination to accommodate interlanguage calls between differing machines.
