var os = require('os');
if (os.platform() == 'win32') {  
    if (os.arch() == 'ia32') {
        var chilkat = require('@chilkat/ck-node11-win-ia32');
    } else {
        var chilkat = require('@chilkat/ck-node11-win64'); 
    }
} else if (os.platform() == 'linux') {

function chilkatExample() {

    // This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
    // See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

    // This example assumes we previously obtained an access token
    var oauth2 = new chilkat.OAuth2();
    oauth2.AccessToken = "FACEBOOK-ACCESS-TOKEN";

    var rest = new chilkat.Rest();

    // Connect to Facebook and send the following GET request:

    // GET /v2.7/me HTTP/1.1
    // Host: graph.facebook.com
    var bAutoReconnect = true;
    var success = rest.Connect("graph.facebook.com",443,true,bAutoReconnect);
    if (success !== true) {
        console.log(rest.LastErrorText);
        return;
    }

    // Provide the authentication credentials (i.e. the access key)
    rest.SetAuthOAuth2(oauth2);

    var responseJson = rest.FullRequestNoBody("GET","/v2.7/me");
    if (rest.LastMethodSuccess !== true) {
        console.log(rest.LastErrorText);
        return;
    }

    // The responseJson looks like this:
    // {"name":"John Doe","id":"10111011320111110"}
