I'm working on the symbol management part of the linker book, and I want
to sound intelligent when I discuss name mangling. I know what g++ does,
and I know what a lot of PC C (pre-C++, it was a while ago), do, but I'd
appreciate reports of how names are mangled on other C++ compilers, as
well as other languages that do something similar.
For example, back in ancient days, did COBOL programmers who were used to
variable names like weekly-pay-before-deducting-baksheesh really put up
with six or eight character linker limits?
