Google API Access for PHP
- A PHP class library to access the Google API via SOAP using WSDL.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


OVERVIEW:
---------

This README file describes the Google API Access for PHP class 
library. 

This class library is designed to make accessing the Google API using 
PHP via SOAP, a lot easier. This is a Java-style class library, which 
uses getter and setter functions to set parameters for search queries, 
and to access individual result components. 


HOW TO USE:
-----------

Step 1: Register with Google to receive an authentication key. You can 
register online at http://www.google.com/apis/.

Step 2: Get the NuSOAP library (http://dietrich.ganx4.com/nusoap), and 
place the file nusoap.php somewhere on the include path, or change the 
'require_once' directive in this file to point to the correct location 
of the nusoap.php file on your computer. 

Step 3: That's it! you can start writing your own code, using this 
library, to access the Google API. Please go through the example code 
to get started.
