How to access private method in my Program.

Hi.
I need some suggestions. Somebody asked this question.
Imagine there is a stand class and it is having private method. My question is how to access this private method in my program.

Suppose if it is public class method we can call like below.
CREATE OBJECT class_name

Now using that object you can call the method

CALL METHOD class_name->method_name

But as per the theory Private methods can not call outside the class.(my class is standard class is not z class)

I read some where they are saying first call public class method there need to call private method.
How could i call the private method.
CALL METHOD class_name->method_name
Anybody can tell me how to call. if possible sample code Please.

You have to search about LOCAL FRIEND

You need to learn what means "private".

Only methods of the same class (or friend classes) can access private members.

It's why you need to find an existing public method (or create one) which calls the private method.

sandeepsuggu he asked for private, not for public.

second point, change this CREATE OBJECT, it is old school
