We describe a binding of the XDR protocol to the Common LISP programming
language and the binding's routine's library implementation. The implementation
solves compatibility problems arising in the exchange of structured data between
modules coded in different programming languages and/or hosted by computing en­
vironments with different hardware architectures. Our facility is used for module
interconnection within ABE, an environment for the development of distributed, het­
erogeneous systems, which is briefly described. Our XDR binding to LISP radically
differs from other bindings previously proposed in that we use an explicit association
