Linking to different style mangled names

Fri Nov 3 16:58:00 GMT 2006


Forgive me if this is covered in some documentation somewhere, but I haven't
found it. 

I trying to link to a library which appears to have been built with an older
version of GCC.  One of the mangled function names is:


However when I compile my app with GCC 3.4.6 it is looking for this name:


The only information I can find about the first style is in "GCC: The
complete reference" by Arthur Griffith, who says his book is based on GCC

The question is how can I convince the linker to do it's stuff here?  I
don't really want to affect the whole application, just this library.
Perhaps it is not possible?
