Chunks in PLAN: Language Support for Programs as Packets. Jonathan T. Moore, Michael Hicks, and Scott M. Nettles. In Proceedings of the 37th Annual Allerton Conference on Communication, Control, and Computing, September 1999.

Chunks are a programming construct in PLAN, the Packet Language for Active Networks, comprised of a code segment and a suspended function call. In PLAN, chunks provide support for encapsulation and other packet programming techniques. This paper begins by explaining the semantics and implementation of chunks. We proceed, using several PLAN source code examples, to demonstrate the usefulness of chunks for micro-protocols, asynchronous adaptation, and as units of authentication granularity.
