If I were to reproduce a program on the Mac platform which would be the best route to go?

With a document type of program that has a database linked to it which enables you to write a shortcut and get a result in tooltip form with the option of inserting it.

Example:
If I were writing a book report on the most recent Harry Potter book and it just so happens that Harry Potter's text is my data base I could write ~HP p32 and instantly all the text on Harry Potter page 32 popped up on the screen in tooltip form over the place I'm typing.

If I were to reproduce the windows application on Mac would there be a difference in which language or type of database I would use in order to use it (it being my database) with a Cocoa program?

Core Data (http://developer.apple.com/macosx/coredata.html) sounds like probably what you are looking for...

Neat stuff, thanks.

Everything on the Apple side seems so simple.
