    3 Many types of substrate allow for RPC-like access (examples are XML-RPC, CGI, proprietary RPC protocols). These types of substrate can use a simplified version of the driver that executes tasks on the substrate directly without the need for Node Agent and associated security setup. This document briefly describes how to do it. You can look at drivers/network/NLRSherpa driver as an example. This document is geared towards creating networking drivers. To use it for other types of drivers substitute

    5   * Directory paths orca/drivers/network for orca/drivers or orca/drivers/<other>
