A PRX file is a DLL file for Playstation consoles; (Playstation Relocatable eXecutable ... maybe)
NidAttack was initially created by others to work out PSP export/import names and I have just altered it slightly to also calculate PS3 names.
Included is an xml database of all exports from PRX files found in the PS3 v2.30 system flash.
Also present is a file with NIDs for just the unknown names, so these are the ones to use NidAttack on.
