In ida File->Load file there is option Parse C header file, I want to understand that .

If I have the headers file that compiled with my binary I can attach and then see all the structures/function name in ida Psudocode /disassembly ??

How is that works how Ida can links the struct/class from header to binary?

  • 1. Depends on the binary 2. It follows function signatures, most of the time we've to set data type manually.

it allows to load type definitions into IDA. I.e. define IDA structures by parsing C header file, so that you don't have to define your structures manually.
