On Windows there is a tool Depends.exe to discover dependency of an EXE/DLL file on other DDLs. Which commandline tool is equivalent on Mac OS and Linux? Please kindly advise. Thank you!

Mac OS X: otool -L file

Linux: ldd file

If those commands don’t provide what you want, on Mac OS X you can dump all the load commands with

otool -l file.

On Linux you can dump the entire contents of the dynamic section with

readelf -d file.
