Hopper is a very famous and popular reverse engineering tool for both Mac and Linux platforms, mainly used to decompile and debug any 32-bit and 64-bit executable (binary file) on Intel Mac, Linux, Windows and iOS.

As is known to all, Hopper is getting to be the best interactive disassembler, compiler and debugger on Mac. Although refers to IDA Pro in many aspects, it is very powerful, user friendly and works efficiently. As a whole it cannot be compared with IDA Pro, but on the analysis of Mac/iOS programs it is absolutely superior to IDA Pro.

// Key Features //

  • Native support for Mac and Linux
  • To analyze the function’s code blocks, variables, etc
  • To generate a code block control flow graph – CFG
  • Invoke other functions of Hopper through a Python script, use more flexibly
  • Dynamic debugging and analysis are allowed through GDP on Mac
  • Excellent support for Objective C – to parse the Selector, strings and sent messages
  • Decompile and generate pseudo code
  • Very fast analysis and less system resource occupation
