Calling a C++ function using function pointer

Mizan Rahman asked:

Open original thread

I have a function that receive a function pointer and an XML string which has the defination of the function and the argument per say:

void CallFunction( void * pFuncion, std::string xmlFuncionDef)

Inside the above function, xmlFunctionDef contains the defination of the function pointed by pFunction. For example, number paramter, type of each parameter, and the arguments:
<Function ParamCount="3" ReturnType="int">
    <Param type="int" DefaultValue="None" PassBy="Value"/>
    <Param type="double" DefaultValue="None" PassBy="Referenc"/>
    <Param type="char*" DefaultValue="None" PassBy="Pointer"/>
   <Arg Value="3" />
   <Arg Value="29.5" />
   <Arg Value="Hello World" />

Now how can I call this function? Should I use _asm for this? Any help would be highly appriciative.
