#67 Rename identifiers to something more meaningful; Skipping rename occasionally
Author: admin JPEXS
Date created:
Type: feature
Visibility: Everybody
Assigned to:
Labels: Deobfuscation
State: closed Help

From guestbook by D: Hi, first at all I do want to say thx for the great and very useful tools. I have suggestions that may be useful to other users: when we call "Rename identifiers" rename class, methods, and vars on something more meaningful, e.g.: class for class_2, methods for methods_2, var for class_2_var_23.
Agreed, nice suggestion!
And I'd like to add option for total renaming - to force renaming for all classes, packages, methods, etc. this would help in cases where renaming algorithm skips obfuscated names occasionally.
for files like the attached one for example (rename ident. doesn't rename variables called with reserved names and vars with leading space for some reason)
I will fix this SWF issue, but please do not add new issues inside other issues, I can't properly set issue state, thank you.
