Maybe you need this:

    value(myFunction&"()")

If there is a chance the function might not exist, then you might need 
to wrap it in a 'try' structure.

Maybe, like this:

function applyNamedFun0 funName
    try
      get value(funName&"()")
    catch e
      get empty
    end try
    return it
end applyNamedFun0

I may have missed the point; I don't see what this has to do with 
arrays.
