Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 485194
man page for c++filt contains unsupported option
Last modified: 2013-04-12 16:04:59 EDT
Description of problem:
The man page talks about "--strip-underscores" option which is not recognized by the binary. The binary recognizes "--strip-underscore" (without 's' at the end).
On the other hand the binary recognizes both "negative" options:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
# c++filt --strip-underscores
c++filt: unrecognized option `--strip-underscores'
Usage: c++filt [options] [mangled names]
[-_|--strip-underscore] Ignore first leading underscore
[-n|--no-strip-underscore] Do not ignore a leading underscore (default)
[-p|--no-params] Do not display function arguments
[-i|--no-verbose] Do not show implementation details (if any)
[-t|--types] Also attempt to demangle type encodings
[@<file>] Read extra options from <file>
[-h|--help] Display this information
[-v|--version] Show the version information
Demangled names are displayed to stdout.
If a name cannot be demangled it is just echoed to stdout.
If no names are provided on the command line, stdin is read.
# c++filt --strip-underscore
1 described option is not supported
all described options are supported
Options "-j" and "--java" which are described in the man page are not recognized -- shall I make a copy of bz#110926 for RHEL-5?
