demangle — Undo C++ name mangling for symbols

Description

demangle reads a list of C++ mangled symbol names from standard input and converts these names to human-readable form on standard output.

This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.

Example

Create a file called names containing the following mangled symbol names:

_ZNK6Object10metaObjectEv 
_ZN8QPtrListI5ArrowE5clearEv 
_ZTC4Kolf0_11KMainWindow

These names can then be demangled as follows:

example$ demangle < names
Object::metaObject() const 
QPtrList<Arrow>::clear() 
construction vtable for KMainWindow-in-Kolf
