How to write an SAP ABAP program to read source code and create a new SAP ABAP function module

A SearchSAP.com reader wants to know if it's possible to write an SAP ABAP program that will read source code and then create an SAP ABAP function module containing the source code.

I am wondering if there is a way to write an SAP ABAP program that will read pre-defined source code (i.e., from file) and then create a new SAP ABAP function module, which will contain the source code. Is this possible?
It is certainly possible, but it might not be straightforward.

Look at the SAP ABAP command INSERT REPORT. You'll also need to understand how a function group is constructed....

An SAP ABAP function module is merely one include in a function group.
