Delphi – unmangle names in BPL’s – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/12

Check out $(BDS)\source\cpprtl\Source\misc\unmangle.c – it contains the source code for the unmangling mechanism used by TDUMP, the debugger and the linker. (C++Builder and Delphi use the same mangling scheme.)

This has been around as long as BCC itself. However the file was called um.c instead of unmangle.c in older versions

Source: Delphi – unmangle names in BPL’s – Stack Overflow both by User Moritz Beutel.

It’s the same mangling used in the TD32/TDS and MAP symbols.

And neede to improve https://github.com/jpluimers/map2dbg (which is my fork of https://github.com/andremussche/map2dbg) which contrary to it’s name also supports TDS/TD32 conversions in tds2pdb. The code is C# and works in virtually any Visual Studio version of 2012 and younger.
