I have a C function that I would like it to either be allowed to receive a proc, method or a symbol. In case a symbol is received, I would like that symbol to be converted to a proc (by calling method() in the context of the *caller* to my method). In pseudo-ruby code: # the idea here is to have: # myfunc( :hello ) # be the same as doing: # myfunc( method( :hello ) ) def hello p 'callback' end def myfunc( proc ) proc = stacktrace[-2].class.method( proc ) if proc.is_a? Symbol # .... etc ... end myfunc( :hello ) # instead of myfunc( method( :hello ) ) Can anyone point me a way to do the above in C (or even ruby)? I'm basically stumped on how can I call the method() function in the context of the caller to my function, so as to properly resolve the binding.
