At present, the use of local area computer networks is a common place practice. This allows heterogeneous computers to share information in a more efficient and trustworthy way7,10. Consequently, distributed systems have come about, which allow the use of the most suitable computer for each application. For example, a computer with a mathematic coprocessor might exist, to meet demands of programs which require the heavy use of floating point operations, that could be used remotely, maintaining at the same time the transparency for the user.
