running a random function

How are you making the list of functions? Something like this:

[code]
fs = []
for k,f in globals():
    if callable(f):
        fs.append(f)
[/code]

Then to call a random one (assuming they all take no parameters):

[code]
import random
random.choice(fs)()
[/code]

Or maybe you only have the name of the function, this should work:

[code]
globals()[name]()
[/code]

Does this help? I'm not really clear on what you are asking for.
