Something like this should work for that case:

  TMyProcedure = procedure;
// if the procedures/functions you want to invoke have parameters
// use something like this:
// TMyFunction = function(arg1 : type1; arg2 : type2) : result_type;

  x : TMyProcedure;

  x := TMyProcedure(0x2c);
  x;  // to invoke it. Or "x()" if you prefer that
