Description Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-02-19 17:40:05 EST

binutils- does not support the GCC 3.0 ABI.
Therefore,  nm -C will not correctly demangle symbols
compiled with GCC 3.0.
Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-02-19 18:47:15 EST
I cannot duplicate the problem. "nm -C" works fine on libstdc++.so downloaded


Please provide a C++ binary to show the problem.

BTW, I am using nm in binutils built from
the tar file.
Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-02-19 19:25:09 EST
OK, I reported the bug wrong.
binutils-, which is in the Fisher beta, does not demangle GCC 3.0

However, I checked out:b

and this version DOES demangle GCC 3.0 symbols, and it also
demangles "old-style" GCC 2.xx C++ symbols.

Will HJL's version of binutils make it into Redhat 7.1?

Close this bug.
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-02-19 19:29:22 EST
binutils- doesn't support gcc 3.0.
I don't see why binutils- or newer
won't be in RedHat 7.1.
Comment 4 Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-02-20 03:01:35 EST
I want to apologize to H.J., seems like I typed nm -C in a wrong window
on a machine which had not binutils upgraded (and then checked CVS binutils
and it worked).
binutils- or newer will be in Red Hat Linux 7.1.
