           Summary: GDC Phobos std.demangle can't demangle symbol
           Product: DGCC aka GDC
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: dvdfrdmn users.sf.net
        ReportedBy: rmann-d-lang latencyzero.com


(Wow, the CC list is LOONG. I hope I'm doing the right thing by posting this
bug here).

I wrote a simple program to demangle symbols. When I try to demangle the
following, I just get the same thing back out. This symbol was emitted by GDC
0.27/DMD 1.00 as part of a link error message.

Hmm. I tried feeding it a mangled symbol generated in the same little program
using the .mangleof property, and it still returns its input unchaged. Maybe it
doesn't work at all on GDC.

Looking at the std.demangle code, it seems that it's looking for a valid symbol
to begin with "_D", rather than the "__D" that is being emitted by gdc. The
symbol above demangles to:

typedef macos.carbon.hitoolbox.Types.OSStatus
macos.carbon.hitoolbox.CarbonEventsCore.InstallEventHandler(typedef
macos.carbon.hitoolbox.CarbonEventsCore.EventTargetRef, typedef
macos.carbon.hitoolbox.CarbonEventsCore.EventHandlerUPP, struct
macos.carbon.hitoolbox.CarbonEventsCore.EventTypeSpec[], void*, out typedef
macos.carbon.hitoolbox.CarbonEventsCore.EventHandlerRef)

Are you sure that the symbol starts with 2 underscores instead of 1?

All Mac OS X symbols start with underscore.

This D code:
void main () { }
extern(C) void test () { }

Produces symbols:
__Dmain
_test

For details see "Mach-O" on Apple Developer.

I don't know if phobos on the Mac should be modified so that std.demangle can
grok the extra underscore. If so, I'll leave this open. If not, feel free to
close this bug.

std.demangle should probably be left to operate on the real symbols - without
the extra underscore, but you might want to add the feature to your simple
program ?


if you use dlsym to load symbols, that will use the symbols without
underscores*. so the extra underscore is more a quirk of the object format,
than anything else.

(* actually something of a minefield if you want portable code, some systems do
require the underscore prepended and yet others do not. but that's another
story)
