https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18642 Issue ID: 18642 Summary: VisualD - Demangle link errors? Product: D Version: D2 Hardware: x86 OS: Windows Status: NEW Severity: enhancement Priority: P1 Component: visuald Assignee: nobody puremagic.com Reporter: turkeyman gmail.com VisualD is using the MS linker, which obviously doesn't demangle D symbols when emitting link errors, but it's a pretty serious usability problem when encountering any link errors. (phobos! >_<) I wonder if we could pipe the linker's output through a processor to detect and demangle D symbols when emitting to the output? It should present the link error text exactly the same as a C++ link error, which shows the demangled name first, followed by the mangled name in parens. --
