# rpc

COMPAS runs in many different environments, but in some environments the availablity of libraries is limited. For example, when running COMPAS in an IronPython-based environment like Rhino/Grasshopper, plenty of CPython libraries such as numpy and scipy are not available. To workaround this limitation, COMPAS provides a mechanisms to access the functionality of a CPython environment seemlessly from any other Python environment through a “Remote Procedure Call” or RPC.

## Classes
