  This is a Dos handler allowing easy access to Your Google Drive storage.


  Without licence key, the handler acts as a read only volume, and document
  exporting is disabled. To obtain the licence key, please contact me using
  my email address. Once licence obtained, full access to all my upcoming
  handlers is enabled. (Dropbox and Google Cloud Print are planned as well)
  The cost of the license is 10 EUR.


  Since there is no installer yet, You need to follow these steps:
  1. Copy the entire 'Google' folder to your Devs: from the archive.
  2. Visit the following site with a modern browser: https://goo.gl/1K3xoq
     and copy the given client code into Devs:Google/_client_code
     (Please note: Every time when You ask new client code, You must delete
     Devs:Google/_access_token and Devs:Google/_refresh_token files if they
     are exist!)
  3. Add the following lines to Your Network-Startup:
  ;BEGIN Google
     Assign SSLROOT: Devs:Google/.sslroot
     Mount GOOGLE: from Devs:Google/google.mountlist
  ;END Google 

  (If somehow You already have SSLROOT: assign, skip that line) 
  That's all. Let's check your installation. Reboot, and open a new
  CLI window. Type: list google:
  If everything is fine, after a few seconds You should see the list of
  files and folders of your GD root. (GD refers to Google Drive in this
  whole document)

  To activate the handler at boot time, change 'activate = 0' to
  'activate = 1' in Devs:Google/google.mountlist
  If You want to see GD icon on Workbench, upload Disk.info from
  Devs:Google/.data to Your GD root. In order to upload files You'll
  need to use a full version of the handler, or a modern browser.


  - GD handler is based on libCurl (v7.37.1), and OpenSSL (1.0.2e)
  You can check the components, and the licence status with this
  command: list google:()about

  - DOpus doesn't follow Amiga programming reference manual, and not
  support EOF for ACTION_READ. Thus I don't recommend DOpus for 
  exporting documents from GD.

  - GD does not allow modification of file contents. If You want to modify
  a file, make a local copy first, and when You have finished, upload it
  to your GD.

  - GD expects the exact file size for every upload. If You creating a new
  file, it is empty. Due to this, if You uploading something, the content
  will be stored into a buffer, and the real upload will occur when the
  file has been closed. The maximum size of the uploaded file is limited
  by amount of free RAM.

  - OCR (automatic text document export from image, during upload)
  - Shared file support
  - icon ghosting
  - thumbnails as icons for NG systems
  - 64 bit actions for NG systems
  - change detection (if You operate with GD on other machine too)
   This handler is still in an early stage of development, far from the
   mature state. It may contain bugs. Please consider this release as a
   public beta. Any feedback is welcomed.
