Using parsing on a Mac

I just needed functionality to parse a PDF into words for Semantic Mapping... which works great in my iPad Simulator. Now I'm think of creating a Mac App with this functionality ... However, the library (i Think) can only be used for iOS - right? Anyhow, is there away to use, or do you have a version so that I can parse PDF's on a Mac?

Thank you

    Please take a look at Apple's PDFKit for mac. If it doesn't fit your needs we can provide a mac version of our library.

    Best regards,

    Hi Matteo

    I have taken a look at Apples PDFKit, but it does not seem to help with what I've already done with FastPDFKit.

    I'm using it very simply to ( using wholeTextForPage), to dump the contents of the PDF to an NSString for further processing. If you know a simple way of doing that on a Mac... please let me know. However, right now the solution from FastPDFKit works great...on the simulator.

    SO, if a Mac version of your library exist... I would love to give it a try.

    I've checked and you can use PDFKit and the [PDFPage string] method that Returns an NSString object representing the text on the page.

    It should be very easy to implement in a mac application.
