PonderTalk

A Managed Object that parses and executes PonderTalk. PonderTalk can be supplied as strings from other PonderTalk statements or as strings received over RMI. The PonderTalk string is executed and the result is returned as a string. If an error occurs then a Ponder2Exception or a RemoteException is thrown. This managed object can also be used as a stand-alone program to send PonderTalk to a remote SMC using RMI.
1. Create this managed object in an SMC giving it a RMI name to use. e.g. MyPonder2
2. Send PonderTalk to the SMC using the Ponder2 JAR file e.g.
java -cp ponder2.jar net.ponder2.PonderTalk MyPonder2 any PonderTalk statement
