Adobe's FDK page starts here:

There is no mailing list or website I've found that features FDK
information. The Framers mailing list may be your best bet for FDK
resources. You can subscribe using these instructions:

Send the message:

Finally, I'm no guru, but I have done some FDK programming.
Unfortunately my hard disk has only partially recovered from a crash and
I can't access the FDK docs at the moment to verify that the selection
of the tag and previous tag is possible.

However, searching a document and writing MIF files are most definitely
supported. I suspect that what you want is possible ... it will just
require more or less C/C++ programming using the FDK depending on how
complicated your requirements actually are.
