Re: D Symbol Demangling

By link compatible, I mean that I'll compile a D file with a D compiler
to a .o file, then I can link it with another .o file compiled with,
say, gcc. So a source file can be either C or D, but not both (barring
some sort of bizarre scripting situations.) An important note here,
however, is that because D can call C functions, some of the symbols in
a D object file won't be mangled.
I've been having trouble figuring out what differentiates the functions.
On the surface, the more complex ones don't work, but in my test,
there's only simple one.
Do I appear to be interfacing with GDB correctly? If so, I'll triple
check my code.
Looks ok at first glance. Do I understand that the D compiler
is not gcc or gcc-derived? That raises the question of whether
the debug info in the D-compiled .o file is "correct" as far as
gdb is concerned. Something unexpected about that info might
cause gdb to "lose its place", eg. in determining which functions
belong to the D-compiled module.
