Can string be callable as a method ?

Hi all
I tried to scan a directory and __import__ all modules ,
<log>
imported module: help
imported module: __init__
imported module: hi
imported module: thanks

and I scaned all methods in them, and put them to a list like:

[['f_chelp', 'f_help'], [], ['f_exclaim', 'f_hi', 'random'],
['f_thanks', 'random']]

But how can I call them from that list??

Thank you.

>>import math
dir(math)
['__doc__', '__file__', '__name__', 'acos', 'asin', ... ]
>>>
math.__dict__['acos'](0)

>>getattr(math, 'asin')(0)
0.0

Instead of storing the names of the functions, better to store the
functions themselves:
>>my_list = [math.acos, math.asin]
my_list[0](1)
0.0
Hope this helps,
