Decorated Names

Functions in C and C++ programs are known internally by their decorated names. A decorated name is a string created by the compiler during compilation of the function definition or prototype.

A decorated name is sometimes required when you specify a function name to LINK or other tools. For details about the situations that require decorated names, consult the documentation for the tool you are using.

NoteNote:

The decorated naming convention for pointers to member functions was changed in Visual C++ version 4.0. C++ libraries created with Visual C++ version 2.0 should be recompiled to link properly with source files compiled with the current version of Visual C++.

To create or view decorated names, see:
