I suggest caution - I've spent probably two months total, scattered
over several years, on the name / linkage name problem.
Coincidentally, I'm about to look at it again; GDB uses linkage names
as a crutch, and they are not available with non-GNU compilers.
This actually brings up a few questions that I have had:
First, what are linkage names used as a crutch for exactly ? Ie what
problem can we solve with linkage names that we cant without ?
Also, if I say
(gdb) print SomeNameSpace::SomeClass::SomeSymbol
(gdb) break SomeNameSpace::SomeClass::SomeSymbol
does gdb know to search for SomeNameSapce then within that try to find
SomeClass, then SomeSymbol ?
