Reads stdin, demangles mangled D symbols, send result to stdout. Useful to filter output from the linker.

Use KeepTerminator.yes here and replace writeln with write? That way you don't produce a spurious \n at end of file if it didn't have one.


michelf commented Jul 5, 2011

Fixed: now using File.KeepTerminator.yes and write instead of writeln. Also removed tabs from ddemangle.d.


klickverbot commented Jul 7, 2011

Does that handle symbols terminated by end-of-line correctly? I have been using this for quite some time now: https://gist.github.com/1069843 (with KeepTerminator.yes edited in right now having read Andrei's comment above).


Trass3r commented Jul 7, 2011

Why does it check for ' ', '"' and ''' to end the search?
Anything that isn't alphanumeric or _ should terminate it, shouldn't it?
E.g. objdump gives stuff like <_D3std5stdio4File14__T5writeTAyaZ5writeMFAyaZv+0x7a>


Trass3r commented Jul 7, 2011

btw, since I didn't know about this pull request before, I implemented yet another demangle tool which reads stdin char-wise, supports demangling names passed on the cmd line and --help.
I think one could also add that cmd line arguments are checked if they are filenames and then process that file instead.



michelf commented Jul 8, 2011

I added a --help switch, and fixed scanning for end of symbol. I could obviously add more features (demangling names passed as arguments, or reading files), but I suggest we leave that to future pull requests.



Use DeMorgan to simplify: if (args.length != 2 || args[1] != "--help" && args[1] != "-h")

I'd rather not remove the braces, imho relying on && binding stronger than || is confusing for other people to read.

aren't you looking for isalnum here?

Once this is merged it'd be cool for rdmd to use it if it's available.

I'll look at this this weekend. Been busy with other things lately.


michelf commented Sep 5, 2011

Should be ready for merge now.

This is not about making code to my liking. I think the proposed changes improve the code and its behavior. If you don't think so, you are free to argue your point. Generally you shouldn't feel you're spending time on changes that don't add value.


michelf replied Sep 5, 2011

For one thing, I think you're right about writing help text to stderr, it was worth changing.

For the rest, I wouldn't have made those changes, but they don't bother me either. I'd be a waste of time to start arguing over such triviality.
