Default Dynamically call javascript functions

hi i have 4 functions named

func1(), func2(), func3(), func4()

The problem is it has to be called based on the number.

i tried using eval() but it is not a good way so i would like to know how to dynamically call any one of the methods if the number is passed

thanks for the help

function callFunctionByIndex(index)
  var functions = [func0, func1, func2, func3, func4];
  return functions[index]();
If you don't have or want a func0 then use [--index] in the function body.
