Return all of the functions that are defined in a Javascript file

For the following script, how can I write a function that returns all of the script's functions as an array? I'd like to return an array of the functions defined in the script so that I can print a summary of every function that is defined in the script.

    function getAllFunctions(){ //this is the function I'm trying to write
        //return all the functions that are defined in the script where this
        //function is defined.
        //In this case, it would return this array of functions [foo, bar, baz,
        //getAllFunctions], since these are the functions that are defined in this
        //script.
    }

    function foo(){
        //method body goes here
    }

    function bar(){
        //method body goes here
    }

    function baz(){
        //method body goes here
    }

Declare it in a pseudo namespace, for example like this:

   var MyNamespace = function(){
    function getAllFunctions(){ 
      var myfunctions = [];
      for (var l in this){
        if (this.hasOwnProperty(l) && 
            this[l] instanceof Function &&
            !/myfunctions/i.test(l)){
          myfunctions.push(this[l]);
        }
      }
      return myfunctions;
     }

     function foo(){
        //method body goes here
     }

     function bar(){
         //method body goes here
     }

     function baz(){
         //method body goes here
     }
     return { getAllFunctions: getAllFunctions
             ,foo: foo
             ,bar: bar
             ,baz: baz }; 
    }();
    //usage
    var allfns = MyNamespace.getAllFunctions();
    //=> allfns is now an array of functions. 
    //   You can run allfns[0]() for example

Here is a function that will return all functions defined in the document, what it does is it iterates through all objects/elements/functions and displays only those whose type is "function".

function getAllFunctions(){ 
        var allfunctions=[];
          for ( var i in window) {
        if((typeof window[i]).toString()=="function"){
            allfunctions.push(window[i].name);
          }
       }
    }

? Here is a jsFiddle working demo ?

Answer

function foo(){/*SAMPLE*/}
function bar(){/*SAMPLE*/}
function www_WHAK_com(){/*SAMPLE*/}

for(var i in this) {
	if((typeof this[i]).toString()=="function"&&this[i].toString().indexOf("native")==-1){
		document.write('<li>'+this[i].name+"</li>")
	}
}
