Returns a procedure that, when called with the name of a remote XML-RPC method, will return a procedure that passes its arguments to the XML-RPC server which is given in uri (which can be an URI object or a string representing an URI).

To determine how XML-RPC types are mapped to Scheme types and vice-versa, see below. It's important that you read this, because there is some ambiguity in how lists are mapped (either to arrays or to structs).

(import xml-rpc-client)

(define time-server
  (xml-rpc-server "") )
(define get-current-time
  (time-server "currentTime.getCurrentTime") )
(print (time->string (get-current-time)))

For lower-level access to the client (implementing custom handlers, for example), you can use the following procedures:
