That's because your example doesn't actually call the function. To be clear:
Suppose you have a function f, defined as follows:

function f()
    return 1

Try the following two lines of code:


The first line will print 'function: 0xXXXXXX', and the second line will print 
'1'. You need to use the brackets to indicate that you are actually calling 
the function as opposed to just referring to it.

Specifically, you need to use the syntax convtable[1][3]() to actually call 
the function.
