i need it to be command line, because i need to do it programmatically not manually.

e.g. html2pdf "thefile.html" "thefile.pdf"

is that possible?

You need software called htmldoc, try to install it via command "yum install htmldoc"

Full manpage found after the install via "man htmldoc" or via this site:

hi ifreq

i am trying to evaluate this htmldoc, i am trying to tested it on my local laptop and it's a windows machine. i've downloaded the windows binary version and installed, but it's asking for a license key.

so i just want to find out, does the linux version also require a license purchase?

thanks
