One desirable objective in the workstation control art is the capability to operate an intelligent workstation from a remote location. A cooperative processing application is one that functions at two or more physical computer locations at the same time. An application which is split between a main frame computer and an intelligent workstation is an example of such an application. The two parts of the application, each executing in different machines, cooperate intelligently to perform the overall intended function of the application.
