Chapter 13. Symbol Mapping

This chapter defines how names are mapped from the source symbol to the object symbol.

13.1. Symbol Mapping

Symbols in a source program are translated by the compilation system into symbols that exist in the object file. The rules for this translation are defined here.

13.1.1. C++ Language

External symbol names in a C++ object file shall be encoded according to the "name mangling" rules described in the Itanium™ C++ ABI.
