objc_rt_class_dump

This is a small amount of code that uses the Objective-C Runtime functions to dump a program's Objective-C class information when injected into a running process via GDB.

Building

For iOS: make

For OS X: PLATFORM=osx make

Usage

  1. Build the library:

     $ PLATFORM=osx make
    
  2. Attach GDB to a running process:

     $ gdb -p `pidof stickies`
     GNU gdb 6.3.50-20050815 (Apple version gdb-1824) (Thu Nov 15 10:42:43 UTC 2012)

     0x00007fff8a36e686 in mach_msg_trap ()
     (gdb)
    
  3. Load the library:

     $ ls
     Makefile            README.md           obj_c_rt_util.c     obj_c_rt_util.c.o   obj_c_rt_util.dylib
     $ pwd
     /Users/ggironda/Repositories/objc_rt_class_dump
     
     (gdb) call (void *) dlopen("/Users/ggironda/Repositories/objc_rt_class_dump/objc_rt_class_dump.dylib")
    
  4. Check /tmp for the output:

     $ grep NSThemeFrameTitleTextField -A20 /tmp/obj_c_rt_util.txt
     NSThemeFrameTitleTextField
       Methods
         dealloc
         isFlipped
         setFrameOrigin:
         drawRect:
         _windowChangedKeyState
         setAttributedStringValue:
         attributedStringValue
         canSmoothFontsInLayer
         invalidateOnFrameOriginChange
         setInvalidateOnFrameOriginChange:
       Properties
         attributedStringValue
         invalidateOnFrameOriginChange
     _NSKeyedUnarchiverHelper
       Methods
         allowedClassNames
         setAllowedClassNames:
         classNameAllowed:
         init
