    Has anyone ever dumped headers from a cocoa library? (.a file generated from XCode?).

    I've extracted the .a file and gotten all the .o files.

    I then tried using class-dump (and variants) on the .o files, but they don't seem to work as they do on the object files in the Apple frameworks.

    I get error messages stating there is no Objective-C runtime in the file. (Even though it's a cocoa library!?).

    Any ideas, anyone?

    If that doesn't work then link it into an app and then dump it. Can you run nm on the .o files?

    Yeah, I did that, and it gives you a listing of the methods, but I don't have any idea of the parameters.

    I'll try your suggestion though.
