So I understand that, given Objective-C's dynamic nature, it's not
possible to accurately identify (at least at compile/link time)
methods that are "dead" or otherwise unused. However, I was wondering
if there are any tools/techniques/scripts/hacks that might be able to
identify methods that at least *appear* to be unused.
The reason I ask is that I'm working with a fairly large codebase that
I've been hacking on since 2001. From time to time I'll find methods
(usually in categories) that may have been used at one point but have
since fallen by the wayside, are no longer used anywhere, and can be
removed. It would be great if there were some way to identify these
kind of methods without having to resort to my current "accidentally
stumble upon old code" method.
Any ideas? Perhaps I'm missing something obvious. Thanks!
