    I just spent about an hour trying to recreate a MacTech example of a Core Data application, and when it compiled I got maybe a million errors in Xcode. I'm sure I made the mistake ... BUT ... I was wondering if there were software out there that could take nib files and core data descriptions and create text files. It would be a lot easier to spot a mistake.

    My memory is a little sketchy, but I'm thinking of something analogous to Rez and DeRez.

    PS ... In case you couldn't figure it out, I'm a n00b

    I've never heard of one.

    Are you sure you have nib files not xib files? xib files are just XML so you should be able to open them in a text editor. Whether they are easy to read/understand I'm not sure...

    Edit to add: you might want to read this. Perhaps the ibtool it discusses could be used to get you what you want?

    that looks like exactly what I could use ... except I'm still on Tiger. But it looks like a good alternative to brute force debugging.

    In that case I think you should still have access to nibtool. The -a option looks like it might help...
