I've been looking at the objects etcetera produced by dmd, and using D's function demangle in std.demangle to decrypt some of the symbols found in such objects by nm.

http://sourceware.org/binutils/docs-2.22/binutils/nm.html

While demangle does produce a demangled version of some symbols, it does not in other cases where they nevertheless look as if they may be mangled names of some kind. I considered that perhaps they are C++ mangled names, but have been unable to get nm to unmangle them, even though it nominally knows about C++ name mangling.

Is there a better analog of demangle I can use to translate back some of these more intractable mangled names? I tried the one in core.demangle but it did no better. Or is there somewhere I could determine the demangling rules and implement them for myself? Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

Here are some examples that are not demangled by std.demangle.demangle :

_D13libd_demangle12__ModuleInfoZ
_D15TypeInfo_Struct6__vtblZ
_D3std5stdio12__ModuleInfoZ
_D3std6traits15__T8DemangleTkZ8Demangle6__initZ
_D47TypeInfo_S3std6traits15__T8DemangleTkZ8Demangle6__initZ

Hmmn, that's odd, now Sean Kelly's reply has vanished from this thread, along with my reply to it, but my original post has reappeared. (Previously that vanished when Sean replied.)

I'm seeing both of your posts in the newsgroup. Although they don't appear in the web front end.

Hmmn, now the posts all appear but in two disjoint threads, the ordered union of which is how they should appear. Never mind: I got a good answer! (In the other half thread.)
