Exporting a document to PDF

Found it very easy to convert a QTextDocument to PDF in Qt. And useful in scenarios like creating reports etc.

For example, Consider the following snippet,

 QString fileName = QFileDialog::getSaveFileName(this, tr("Save File"),
 "untitled",tr("PDF Document ('''.pdf)"));
 QPrinter printer;
 printer.setOutputFormat(QPrinter::PdfFormat);
 printer.setOutputFileName(fileName);
 doc->print(&printer); // doc is QTextDocument'''

We can use the printer class to print the document to a file : a pdf file.
