I have this function :
extern(C++) void* __dsfml_start_thread(EntryPoint entryPoint, void*
If EntryPoint is defined as follow :
alias extern(C++) void* function(void*) EntryPoint;
The function mangle in _Z20__dsfml_start_threadPFPvS_ES_
if alias extern(C++) void* function(shared void*) EntryPoint;
Both demangle using c++filt in __dsfml_start_thread(void* (*)(void*),
void*), which is what is expected.
But the definition without shared will be the only one to link successfully.
Is the mangling of shared types is consistent in C++ ? shared doesn't
exists in C++, so I guess we should expect the same mangling in both
cases. Unless it exists some magic on the C++ side that I'm not aware of ?
