Thank you. Do you know also if I can do a similar operation with functions? I want to select with a string a certain get() function of ConfigParser:

if   type == "int" :
    funcname = "getint"
elif type == "bool" :
    funcname = "getboolean"

How can I invoke the funcion with its name in a string?
