save website as pdf and send pdf as an email?


PDFCreator has a feature that allows a person to print-save a website/document as a PDF and send that as an email.

Does anyone know any software in GNU/Linux that does the same?

I can do it through CUPS. from browser file-> print. Select print to file, select .pdf, name file and hit print. Saves to folder designated. Then email.

That's not the point.
The point is using a printing feature that *automates* the emailing for a person.

could also make a script that calls html2pdf then uses the mail command to send the email via the command line. Also make the script take the webpage as an argument.

Yeah, if I knew how to do that, then I'd probably already have done it.
I'm sure there is a way to tinker with applications and the browser interface, but I lack the programming knowledge to prescribe such a perfect program.
