So basically I want to create a Dynamic Library in OS X that is built utilizing Cocoa (In Obj-C, not C or C++).  My question is - how do I do this?

Ultimately I want the library to be loaded by another application (which I know how to do).  I just don't know how to create a module utilizing Objective-C.

Thanks!

Probably, the easiest way is to create new project in Xcode and choose the framework template.

It's all explained here:

My end result is to inject the binary into another running process, I don't believe I can do this w/a framework

For sure I cannot help you with it.
You wanted to know how to create your own dynamic library - you got the answer - Apple explains it perfect.
