After about 3 hours total of searching I'm unable to find a post made on WHT regarding exactly what I wanted.
What I want to do is create an image based off an html file. I remember reading a thread about it with a reference to whois.sc but it seems the archive doesn't go back that far -- or mabye I'm just searching for the wrong stuff.
Anyway, I need to be able to do this programmingly so no 3rd party applications (unless it can be used on a *nix machine) or anything like that. I remember someone recommended either a unix program or a library however I'm unable to recall the exact name.
