Try following example:

#include <iostream>

class   foo
        int funct1 (void) { cout << "foo::Funct1\n"; }
        int funct2 (void) { cout << "foo::Funct2\n"; }

int main (void)
        foo     f1;
        int   (foo::*funct[])(void) = { &foo::funct1, &foo::funct2 };
        for (int i=0; i<2; i++) (f1.*funct[i])();
        for (int i=0; i<2; i++) ((&f1)->*funct[i])();
        return 0;

And read some good book about C++...


PS. This is tests example only. If You don't have real application
    for such features, You most likely don't really need it 

    Also this stuff is off topic in DJGPP mailing list. More appropriate
    place would be some C++ related newsgroup
