I am not Alexei, but maybe attached picture will be useful.

I made it from your attached file.

>> TOTAL NUMBER OF SHELLS = 10

>> TOTAL NUMBER OF BASIS FUNCTIONS = 38

>> NUMBER OF ELECTRONS = 12

>> CHARGE OF MOLECULE = 0

>> STATE MULTIPLICITY = 1

>> NUMBER OF OCCUPIED ORBITALS (ALPHA) = 6

>> NUMBER OF OCCUPIED ORBITALS (BETA ) = 6

>>Orbital #6 is HOMO and orbital #7 is LUMO.

>>>Dear Sir,

>>>Please forgive me for asking this question perhaps again in this forum. Actually I have completed the HESSIAN run and am able to read the HOMO,LUMO energies USING GABEDIT software. But I find it really too involving and error prone to calculate the HOMO-LUMO gap from the data. Please suggest em a simpler way so that I get the HOMO-LUMO gap directly...IS there any COMMAND I could add in the FIREFLY input file to get HOMO-LUMO printed in the output file directly?

>>>If a command line input is not available, can Prof. Alex add ONE such command for the users?
