For example, an array of functions where each function is an active button, or an array of functions that behave like formulae in a spreadsheet. I am finding this a bit challenging in Python.

Suppose I want an array where the colum three is a set of functions that operates on the other two columns, depending on the values I set for those rows and columns? As noted, I can do this pretty easily in most languages (well, except for Java which does not support any kind of functional programming capability), even if I have to use pointers.

Could you share a code snippet in C/C++ that would do what you need?
