jtool support for ar libraries

Postby angu2111 » Mon Sep 17, 2018 10:11 am

Lately I've been using jtool to inspect .a libraries.
Since they are not supported out of the box I wrote a simple wrapper around ar and jtool.
Would it be possible to have them supported directly from jtool?

Thanks

Absolutely. The only reason why jtool doesn't support ar is because I never ran into much of them, but that's a great idea!

If you can please upload a couple here I can introduce support for them in jtool2.

Here you are!
Attached you can find a simple arm64 library with 3 objects. I also attached the fat version (arm64+armv7) which is not supported by ar(1) (would be nice to have it in jtool tho).

If you need some beta testing I would be more than honored to help you out

I'll take you up on that because your AR files are the only ones I have.. Check the daily build of jtool2 at http://NewOSXBOok.com/temp/jtool2 (WARNING - MAY BE UNSTABLE AND STILL LACKS SOME IMPORTANT FEATURES) and let me know what features to add in?
