How to View Methods inside .so library file
I have library named libtest.so
I need to get all the method names from the library with the return type.
By using -nm linux command i could get the method names but not the return type of the method.
Is there any other mrthod to get the method names.
As far as I know, there is not. At the level of a library file, everything is in Assembly, which can only return numbers from functions, and such a number may be treated as a number or as a pointer to memory.
If the library was compiled with debugging symbols (the -g flag to gcc), you may be able to use gdb or a decompiler of some sort to deconstruct it, but these are non-standard.
