demangle MSVC, Delphi & C++Builder mangled function names with pure Ruby

Ever wanted to convert @afunc$qxzcupi or ??3@YAXPAX@Z to something more human-readable?

(ofcourse you wanted, and you know about tdump.exe and undname.exe :)

And now you can do it using pure ruby, thanks to unmangler gem:

# output:
# afunc(const signed char, int *)
# __fastcall Forms::TApplication::SetTitle(const System::AnsiString)
