let pdf417Data: String = MyFakeLicenseScanner.scan()

// Create a parser with that data
let parser: Parser = Parser(data: pdf417Data)

// Ask the parser to parse it
let parsedLicense: ParsedLicense = parser.parse()

print(parsedLicense.firstName)
// => Optional("John")
print(parsedLicense.middleName)
