       otool - object file displaying tool

       otool [ option ...  ] [ file ...  ]

       The  otool  command  displays  specified  parts	of object files or libraries.  If the, -m
       option is not used, the file arguments may be of the form libx.a(foo.o), to request infor-
       mation  about only that object file and not the entire library.	 (Typically this argument
       must be quoted, ``libx.a(foo.o)'', to get it past  the  shell.)	 Otool	understands  both
       Mach-O (Mach object) files and fat file formats.  Otool can display the specified informa-
       tion in either its raw (numeric) form (without the -v flag), or in a symbolic  form  using
       macro names of constants, etc. (with the -v or -V flag).

       At least one of the following options must be specified:

       -a     Display the archive header, if the file is an archive.

       -S     Display the contents of the `__.SYMDEF' file, if the file is an archive.

       -f     Display the fat headers.

       -h     Display the Mach header.

       -l     Display the load commands.

       -L     Display  the names and version numbers of the shared libraries that the object file

       -D     Display just install name of a shared library.

       -s segname sectname
	      Display the contents of the section (segname,sectname).  If the -v flag  is  speci-
	      fied,  the  section  is displayed as its type, unless the type is zero (the section
	      header flags).  Also the sections (__OBJC,__protocol), (__OBJC,__string_object) and
	      (__OBJC,__runtime_setup) are displayed symbolically if the -v flag is specified.

       -t     Display the contents of the (__TEXT,__text) section.  With the -v flag, this disas-
	      sembles the text.  And with -V, it also symbolically disassembles the operands.

       -d     Display the contents of the (__DATA,__data) section.

       -o     Display the contents of the __OBJC segment used by the Objective-C run-time system.

       -r     Display the relocation entries.

       -c     Display the argument strings (argv[] and envp[]) from a core file.

       -I     Display the indirect symbol table.

       -T     Display the table of contents for a dynamically linked shared library.

       -R     Display the reference table of a dynamically linked shared library.

       -M     Display the module table of a dynamically linked shared library.

       -H     Display the two-level namespace hints table.

       The following options may also be given:

       -p name
	      Used with the -t and -v or -V options to start the disassembly from symbol name and
	      continue to the end of the (__TEXT,__text) section.

       -v     Display verbosely (symbolically) when possible.

       -V     Display  the disassembled operands symbolically (this implies the -v option).  This
	      is useful with the -t option.

       -X     Don't display leading addresses when displaying contents of sections.

       -arch arch_type
	      Specifies the architecture, arch_type, of the file for otool(1) to operate on  when
	      the  file  is  a	fat  file.  (See arch(3) for the currently know arch_types.)  The
	      arch_type can be "all" to operate on all architectures in the file.  The default is
	      to  display  only  the  host  architecture, if the file contains it; otherwise, all
	      architectures in the file are shown.

       -m     The object file names are not assumed to be in the  archive(member)  syntax,  which
	      allows file names containing parenthesis.
