O$6.0.3 – Calling a method using a private method as a parameter
I think what you are after is $cmethod.$name or is it $cmethod().$name. This will eliminate any unknown values being passed around.
NOTE: passing in $cmethod as a parameter will pass a link to the current executing method before it jumped into the new method.
So from the calling method you ca do, the following…
1. Do method callMe($cmethod().$name)
2. Do method callMe($cclass.$methods.$findname(‘someMethod’).$name())
Another thing you can add to your “callMe” method is a test to see if the name exists… There are again a few ways of doing it…
1. if not(isclear($cclass.$methods.$findname(‘someMethod’)))…
2. if not($cclass.$methods.[method_name_var].$ident.$cando())
The $cando() technique is a boolean test to see if a specific notation query can be executed.

I can successfully use a public method as the parameter (e.g. do method callMe($cinst.$someMethod)) but I don’t really want to make $someMethod part of the public API. I want to make the call the equivalent of: do method callMe(do method someMethod). I realize I could pass the private method name as text and then perform a do method [passedValue] inside the receiving method but the calling syntax is less expressive that way, more prone to typos, and doesn’t pass my personal ‘this is clearly a hack’ test. There are certainly times when passing the method name as text is an appropriate solution (delayed execution etc) but in this case not so much.
