Borland's name mangling scheme used to be part of their Open
Architecture manual or whatever they call it. You might be able to
download it right off their website. Microsoft's part of their
Microsoft C++ Object Model document. Watcom's available from them
upon request (you get a YACC grammar).

As a rule of thumb, you have to contact the compiler vendor and
they'll provide it to you free of charge. Just explain to them why
you need it (and make sure they find the reason beneficial to their
competitive position).
