[PHP] Dynamic function calling

People says PHP is flexible, Yes, really it is! Suppose you need to call function dynamical order. Here it is how?
The magic PHP function called call_user_func()

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
function increment(&$var)
{
    $var++;
}

$a = 0;
call_user_func('increment', $a);
echo $a."\n";

call_user_func_array('increment', array(&$a)); // You can use this instead before PHP 5.3
echo $a."\n";
?>

Output will be :
0 1
