       c++filt - demangle C++ symbols

	      [-_|--strip-underscores] [-s {gnu,lucid,arm} |
	      --format={gnu,lucid,arm}] [--help] [--version] [symbol...]

       The C++ language provides function overloading, which means that you
       can write many functions with the same name (providing each takes
       parameters of different types).	All C++ function names are encoded
       into a low-level assembly label (this process is known as mangling).
       The c++filt program does the inverse mapping: it decodes (demangles)
       low-level names into user-level names so that the linker can keep these
       overloaded functions from clashing.

       Every alphanumeric word (consisting of letters, digits, underscores,
       dollars, or periods) seen in the input is a potential label.  If the
       label decodes into a C++ name, the C++ name replaces the low-level name
       in the output.

       You can use c++filt to decipher individual symbols by specifying these
       symbols on the command line.

       If no symbol arguments are given, c++filt reads symbol names from the
       standard input and writes the demangled names to the standard output.
       All results are printed on the standard output.


	      On some systems, both the C and C++ compilers put an underscore
	      in front of every name.  For example, the C name foo gets the
	      low-level name _foo.  This option removes the leading

       -s {gnu,lucid,arm}

	      GNU nm can decode three different methods of mangling, used by
	      different C++ compilers.	This option selects which method it
	      uses: the one used by the GNU compiler, the one used by the
	      Lucid compiler, or the one specified by the C++ Annotated
	      Reference Manual.	 The default is the GNU style.

       --help Print a summary of the options to c++filt and exit.

	      Print the version number of c++filt and exit.
