This class can be used to add class functions dynamically from script files.

It traps calls to inexistent class functions. The class loads script files with the same name as the called function and uses the loaded code to implement the missing functions.

One way to extend the functionality of a class is to load external plug-in scripts when certain functions are called.

The inconvenience of this approach is that usually needs to register somehow the functions that are implemented by plug-ins before calling them.

This class implements a more automatic approach that does not require prior plug-in registration.

It implements a default class call function which intercepts calls to missing functions and automatically loads on demand external plug-in scripts with names based on the called function.
