16.2.4 RK Calls

The RK calls required by Zipcode are as follows:

It is important to note that xsend() and xmsend() deallocate the message buffer after sending the message; they are semantically analogous to xfree(). The receive functions xrecv() and xrecvb() are semantically analogous to xmalloc().

Zipcode-based programs are not to call any of these CE or RK functions directly. Both message passing and environment control are represented in Zipcode.
