Dear Pasha,
I am REALLY thankful to you for making me understand this calculation. I have been stuck into it for a long time. I am really thankful Sir. Specially for your effort to make me understand in this wonderful and effective way.

Regards,

>>> 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.

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?
