This will, at best, give you static method calls, but to handle
dynamic method calls, you need something more. I suggest you look in
a compiler textbook to see how OO languages are compiled and use the
methods presented there. Not all compiler textbooks describe OO, so
look before you buy. Andrew Appel's "Modern Compiler Implementation
in {C | Java | ML}" has a section on OO that should be sufficient for
your needs.
