How to inspect a MacOS executable file (Mach-O)?
« on: November 16, 2019, 01:40:15 AM »
How to see some basic information about a MacOS binary file, specifically what was used to build it, which frameworks it is linked against and what system calls it is using?

I tried
Code: [Select]
nm and
Code: [Select]
otool -L but their output is only partially useful.

For example, what would indicate that a binary was built with xcode or golang compiler?
