func chilkatTest() {
    var success: Bool = true

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

    // This example uses a previously obtained access token having permission for the 
    // Google Drive scope.

    let gAuth = CkoAuthGoogle()
    gAuth.AccessToken = "GOOGLE-DRIVE-ACCESS-TOKEN"

    let rest = CkoRest()

    // Connect using TLS.
    // A single REST object, once connected, can be used for many Google Drive REST API calls.
    // The auto-reconnect indicates that if the already-established HTTPS connection is closed,
    // then it will be automatically re-established as needed.
    var bAutoReconnect: Bool = true
    success = rest.Connect("www.googleapis.com", port: 443, tls: true, autoReconnect: bAutoReconnect)

    // Provide the authentication credentials (i.e. the access token)
    rest.SetAuthGoogle(gAuth)

    // ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    // To download a file, we must know the file ID.
    // In a previous example (see Build Local Metadata Cache
    // we built a local cache to make it easy to lookup file IDs given a file path.
    // Let's say we want to download "testFolder/abc/123/pigs.json".
    // First we lookup the fileId in the cache.  With the fileId, we can download the file.
    let gdCache = CkoCache()
    gdCache.Level = 0
    gdCache.AddRoot("C:/ckCache/googleDrive")

    var fileId: String? = gdCache.FetchText("testFolder/abc/123/pigs.json")
    if gdCache.LastMethodSuccess != true {
        print("Filepath not found in cache.")
        return
    }

    // We need to send a GET request like this:
    // GET https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v3/files/fileId?alt=media
    // The fileId is part of the path.
    let sbPath = CkoStringBuilder()
    sbPath.Append("/drive/v3/files/")
    sbPath.Append(fileId)
    rest.AddQueryParam("alt", value: "media")

    // The FullRequestNoBody returns the file content in the response body.
    var fileContent: String? = rest.FullRequestNoBody("GET", uriPath: sbPath.GetAsString())
    if rest.LastMethodSuccess != true {
        print("\(rest.LastErrorText)")
        return
    }

    // A successful response will have a status code equal to 200.
    if rest.ResponseStatusCode.intValue != 200 {
        print("response status code = \(rest.ResponseStatusCode.intValue)")
        print("response status text = \(rest.ResponseStatusText)")
        print("response header: \(rest.ResponseHeader)")
        return
    }

    print("\(fileContent!)")

    print("File downloaded.")
