I believe Uppsala University ran a project on mobile agents [for last
year
students] back in 1996 using Erlang, so the idea is not new. Take out
your
Swedish - English dictionary (or favorite web page translator) and look
at

If I remember correctly, it was a project partly funded by Telia (The
Swedish
Phone company), so I do not know if the source code is available.
