Is there a built in command to convert a declared proc to string? Or how can I write my own function to do that?

Hmmmm I can think of doing file read operation if the proc is in a separate file.

Any other ideas?

Thanks

Do you mean like:

proc twoPSpheres()
{
polySphere;
polySphere;
}

{
string $twoPSpheresCmd = " print \" where dem shpere's at? \\n\"; twoPSpheres; ";
eval $twoPSpheresCmd;
}

Actually I'd just say NO!
A proc is like a command. It has functionallity. It can do stuff. You call it, it does things.
A string is just a collection of letters, a variable. It can be used in a procedure or by a command.
They are very different things!

Better try to tell us what you want to do :D
maybe then we can tell you how to do it :)

Or do you mean something like 'pickling' in Python?
