pimperator has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all, I have ~64GB of data on a google drive account that I would either like to transfer to my server (SCP/SFTP) or possibly, use a perl script to parse files in the google drive I saw some modules, but they don't have any examples on how to set up the account. Any experience here? Tusen Takk

      documentation does not exist and I don't know how to set up my google drive account to allow this kind of access

        There is Net::Google::Drive::Simple, which has extensive documentation on how to configure Google Drive and how to use the module.

    What have you tried? List these modules, the steps you have taken, and where you are getting stuck.

    Also consider reading the Google Drive API documentation. This way, you might better understand the modules' terminology.
