THE PROGRAMMERS IS ALSO PROVIDED WITH A MECHANISM FOR SYNCHRONIZATION OF THE CONCURRENT OPERATIONS. THE REMOTE-EVALUATION FUNCTIONALITY IS PROVIDED BETWEEN A COLLECTION OF FULL COMMON LISP PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENTS. THESE ENVIRONMENTS ARE VIEWED AS LOOSELY COUPLED, EACH WITH ITS PRIVATE, NON-SHARED LISP WORKSPACE, AND WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO CAUSE DIRECT SIDE EFFECTS WITHIN ANY OTHER SUCH ENVIRONMENT.
