 Commentary:

 Modification History:

 Mon Feb 17 12:20:13 2003 Changed option parsing algorithm to use
                          getopt. Use __main__ calling convention.
                          Bug in FF character fixed.
 Thu Apr 10 11:26:58 2003 Modified to use python style strings
                          and function objects.
 July 1 2003              Fixed help string errors. Added the
                          Creator property.
 Feb 25 2004              Rewrote argument parser to remove
                          duplicate code.Use string.join() instead
                          of concatenation. Modified sys.exit()
                          calls to print messages.
 Nov 04 2009              V.Sergeyev: Modified to act with stream objects (not files). 
                          Usefull for producing PDF on web-sites. 
 Example: produce PDF document from text and output it as HTTPResponse object (Django)
    import StringIO
    input_stream = StringIO.StringIO(text)
    result = StringIO.StringIO()
    
    pdfclass = pyText2Pdf(input_stream, result)
    pdfclass.Convert()
    
    response = HttpResponse(result.getvalue(), mimetype="application/pdf")
    response['Content-Disposition'] = 'attachment; filename=pdf_report.pdf'
    
    return response
