Does python have an internal list/dictionary of functions?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Carl J. Van Arsdall, Feb 16, 2006.

  1. Python Gurus:

    Let me elaborate a bit more on this question. Basically, I want to know
    if there is some data structure in python that maps a string function
    name to an address of a function or something to that nature.

    If this is confusing, let me describe what I want to do and see if
    anyone has any ideas.

    basically we have:

    >>>def functA():

    .... pass

    >>> functA

    <function functA at 80db128>

    And what I'd like to do is:

    >>>__internalFuncDict__['functA']

    <function functA at 80db128>

    This is just for a little experimental project of mine, any help or
    pointers to the proper pages in the manual would be greatly
    appreciated. Basically, I know that I can create something like this if
    I have to but I was very much hoping that something already existed
    somewhere that I could get to via python or by writing a C extension.

    Thanks in advance!

    globals()['functA']
