If it is a place that you have access (i.e. not in "protected memory") then you just have to declare a function pointer and set it e.g. a pointer to a function returning an INT and taking two INTs as arguments would look like ...

int main() {
int (*FunkyName)(int, int);
FunkyName = (int (*)(int,int))0xC800;
(*FunkyName)(5, 3);
return(1);
}
