#1095 '§§dup' appearing on simple function

> What steps will reproduce the problem? Open the swf file, navigate to script common.util.Util._$(). (line 307 in the editor) and let the decompiler decompile the code. The settings are all default. Turning on and off auto-deobfuscation causes no difference to the output. > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? A simple function decompiles with stray "§§dup"s, see below. > What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system do you have? I am running FFDec_7.1.1 Release .jar file on MacOS (10.11), Java 8 update 65 (Although I think this problem is not probably related to runtime environment). > Please provide any additional information below. If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you. Hello. When trying to decompile a swf, ffdec returned the code with stray "§§dup"s. I have read similar issues about '§§' and understand that this is a temporary workaround, but just for your information, and this simple function does not seem to be obfuscated. P-CODE ====== method name "$4:anonymous" param Qname(PackageNamespace(""),"Number") returns Qname(PackageNamespace(""),"Number") body maxstack 3 localcount 2 initscopedepth 0 maxscopedepth 0 code getlex Qname(PackageNamespace(""),"Math") dup pushstring "floor" getproperty MultinameL([PrivateNamespace("common.util:Util"),StaticProtectedNs("common.util:Util"),Sta ticProtectedNs("Object"),PackageNamespace("common.util"),PackageInternalNs("common.util"), PrivateNamespace("FilePrivateNS:Util"),PackageNamespace(""),Namespace("f5708698caba8c51c7d 1d2070ac5ad10")]) swap getlocal_1 call 1 returnvalue Decompiled: =========== ret.m = function(param1:Number):Number { return §§dup(Math)["floor"](param1); }; Expected: ========= I do not own the source code, but I speculate that the function should be something like: return Math["floor"](param1); Notes: ====== The swf file contains manually obfuscated code (those unintelligible RegExps), but I think '§§dup' is not used to obfuscate the code. The file was named decoded because it was previously encrypted, and the file uploaded should be standard swf with Actionscript 3. By the way, moving the caret in p-code panel seem to point the caret to incorrect code in the decompiled AS code panel. Thank you for your wonderful decompiler!
In current nightly(1202+), the dups are hidden by default, it should solve the problem.
