You're probably looking from the wrong place. At least the answer can be
found from
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/view.php?version=7.3&idoc=0&file=plpgsql-statements.html

On that page, heading 19.5.3 states that you can do:

	PERFORM MYFUNCTION(...); 

if you wish to discard the return value. 
Or if your function returns something then you do:

	myresult:=MYFUNCTION(...);
