running a procedure who's memory address and prototype are known

running a procedure who's memory address and prototype are known

I have come across a situation where an MS procedure could be loaded using a standard call to a win32 dll and returning the memory address of the specified procedure. Is it possible to call the specified procedure using its memory address and prototype. Here is the equivalent in C:
void main()
// the procedure is defined as a typedef.
typedef func(param1,param2);

func lpfunc;

// the following call retrieves the memory address of func.
retriever(&lpfunc); //

// now I use lpfunc to process the two parameters as if I am using func.

// it is presumed that repetitive calls using lpfunc are preferred to repetitive call of the func to achieve more performance.

Any idea how this scenario can be done in Clarion. A example would be most welcome. I am sure one Clarioner could do it.
