Solving a computational problem with NetSolve is a function evaluation:
<output> = <name>(<input>)
<name> is a character string containing the name of the problem,
<input> is a list of input objects, and
<output> is a list of output objects.
An object is itself described by an object type and a data type. The types available in the current version of NetSolve are shown in Table 17-1 and Table 17-2. Rather than giving examples for each object type, we refer the reader to the programs in $NETSOLVE_ROOT/src/Examples, $NETSOLVE_ROOT/src/Testing, and $NETSOLVE_ROOT/src/Tutorial. The user can also refer to the Section called Mnemonics in Chapter 17 for a description of the requirements for each NetSolve object type as it relates to the problem description file.
