dmd doesn't print the output of ld to stderr, ld does. I believe binutils has some support for D symbol demangling thanks to the GDC folks. I tried it once: http://forum.dlang.org/post/bdmsrcczmizevhxorquo forum.dlang.org So I think you need to find a way to pass --demangle=dlang to ld. Maybe `dmd program.d -L--demangle=dlang`? Mike

Thanks Mike. I was looking at src/ddmd/link.d, has the below that reads the output of ld. So I was wondering if we can plugin the demangle logic in this function. Nevertheless, good to know the linker already supports it. ``` private int findNoMainError(int fd) { version (OSX) { static __gshared const(char)* nmeErrorMessage = "\"__Dmain\", referenced from:"; } else { static __gshared const(char)* nmeErrorMessage = "undefined reference to `_Dmain'"; } FILE* stream = fdopen(fd, "r"); if (stream is null) return -1; const(size_t) len = 64 * 1024 - 1; char[len + 1] buffer; // + '\0' size_t beg = 0, end = len; bool nmeFound = false; for (;;) { // read linker output const(size_t) n = fread(&buffer[beg], 1, len - beg, stream); if (beg + n < len && ferror(stream)) return -1; buffer[(end = beg + n)] = '\0'; // search error message, stop at last complete line const(char)* lastSep = strrchr(buffer.ptr, '\n'); if (lastSep) buffer[(end = lastSep - &buffer[0])] = '\0'; if (strstr(&buffer[0], nmeErrorMessage)) nmeFound = true; if (lastSep) buffer[end++] = '\n'; if (fwrite(&buffer[0], 1, end, stderr) < end) return -1; if (beg + n < len && feof(stream)) break; // copy over truncated last line memcpy(&buffer[0], &buffer[end], (beg = len - end)); } return nmeFound ? 1 : 0; } ```

Ah, right you are. My apologies. It'd probably be simple enough to have that demangling on by default. Maybe I'll give it a go later today. What's your use case? Just getting unresolved symbols? Mike

Yeah, I was just wondering what if the output can be readable, given that dmd is the one that invokes ld. Would be much more human readable without piping through ddemangle. Thanks.

no need to ;-) just add this to DFLAGS in dmd.conf, "Envirnment" section: -L--demangle=dlang so, it should look something like this: .. [Environment] DFLAGS=<your flags here> -L--demangle=dlang .. due to hard work of Iain Buclaw, gdb and binutils (ld, objdump, etc.) are able to demangle DMD names. note that new DMD version *may* include slightly changed mangling scheme, so the latest betas *may* produce "undecipherable" names.

p.s.: redirecting output to ddemangle may work too, as ddemange will try to detect mangled DMD names, and won't modify other text. this way you can, for example, demangle names in valgrind output.
