PDFRead 1.8.2 working on Mac OS X

I will now add the source to post#1 for easy access for all.

The Windows GUI and Installer is NOT mac-friendly, but the source code is python which can be made to work on Mac OS X using the detailed installation instructions in the manual (index.html). For further information, read PDFRead on Mac OS X by sammykrupa

Otherwise, if you can run Windows emulation on your mac, then that would be the route to take (especially if creating .imp formats).

If you have a pdf that fails consistently and you would like me to check it on the mac, then let me know.
Per the above, PDFRead 1.8.2 can be made to work on Mac OS X.

Thanks go out to sammykrupa and donovand for discovering this!
