(Visual Basic 6.0) AWS S3 File Streaming Upload

Demonstrates how to do a streaming upload from a file to the AWS S3 storage service. The AWS authorization presents some difficulties when the REST request body is to be streamed from a file (or from some other source). The issue is that the SHA-256 hash of the file data must be calculated. There are only two possible ways to do this: (1) stream the file into memory in its entirety and calculate the SHA-256 hash prior to uploading, or (2) pre-calculate the SHA-256 in a streaming fashion, and then provide it to the AWS authentication object.

If the application does NOT pre-compute the SHA-256, then Chilkat (internally) is forced to stream into memory, calculate the SHA-256, and then upload from the in-memory copy of the file.

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

'  This first part is optional.  AWS authentication requires
'  the SHA-256 hash of the request body (i.e. the contents of the file
'  to be uploaded).  We can choose to pre-calculate the SHA-256 in a streaming fashion
'  and then provide it to the authenticator object.  This way, if the file is
'  extremely large, it never needs to completely reside in memory.

'  If the application provided the SHA-256 hash of the file contents (as shown above)
