Call a function from a group of different argument lists with out switch statement

Here I am having three lists

1)Pointer to Functions (Functions are of variable arguments and different argument types)
2)Argument Type List
3)Arguments received( Received in a buffer, In this we are not receiving any argument type. It is a block of data)

From this I need initialize the arguments and assing the data received in 3 and call the function with these initialized argumnets.
One way is switch case depends on function type.
This will consume lot of memory.

Another way is push the received data onto the stack depends on the srgument type and call the function(This nneds assemly language and not user friendly).
If any other Idea..Please ....

Thanks in advance,
klkreddy

not sure though what exactly the situation is but ..

how about calling the function by pointers indexed by function type.

like say g_func is an array of pointer to functions.

so instead of a switch you index into the array using the function type or id.

(g_func[ function_tpe ])(args...);

this doesnt require assembly to manipulate stack too. Provided you have function ids for all the function callable.

Please post further information incase i havent understood the problem.

If you're trying to implement RPC I'd suggest first looking into existinggmechanisms. RPC isn't trivial.
