sorry, it seems the formatting was lost in the previous post.
I guess the appropriate toolkits it refers to are the WhipTK and W3DTK (which come with the DWFToolkit). questions:
-- the DWFToolkit can be used to read DWF version 6 and later; for prior versions we need the the WhipTK and W3DTK. is this correct?
-- the WhipTK and W3DTK only exist for Windows; Mac users cannot then handle DWF with versions prior to 6. is this correct?
Thank you for your questions.
I will answer them one by one.
- No, the DWFToolkit, WhipTK and W3DTK work together to read/write DWF file. The DWFToolkit is the main/common interface to read/write DWF (like we can use getPackageInfo() to get the DWF file type); the WhipTK is to read/write 2D data in the DWF, the W3DTK is to read/write 3D data in the DWF.
Please refer to DWF Toolkit documents and samples to process various type DWF.
- The DWF Toolkit (includes DWFToolkit, WhipTK and W3DTK) can handle DWF 6 and later version in Mac.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.

this is answered. I was able to read DWF versions prior to 6 in mac os x using the whiptk.
I had been confused by the fact that in windows we explicitly build the whiptk and w3dtk (per the toolkit instructions) while we do not do that in mac os x...
