 * Dependancy-1: html2ps package, you may get it from here: http://user.it.uu.se/~jan/html2ps.html                 *
 * you may install it from terminal by typing "sudo apt-get install html2ps" withpcl quote in kubuntu (in my case) *
 * html2ps uses perl                                                                                               *
 * Dependancy-2: Ghostscript, you may get it from here: http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/                           *
 * Download it and run "make" command from terminal. you have to download and run exe installer if you use Windows *
 * The ps_output directory is used to store .ps files which are used to generate smaller sized pcl file            *
 * keep in your mind that you should have write permission in "pcl_output" directory                               *
