    What is it you can't do. Once logged all you need is a simple "command" like this GET:$FO +RMAT&docID=$DOC_ID&hl=en

    Valid export formats for $FORMAT include 'rtf' 'pdf' 'txt' and 'doc'. Obviously you need to specify the $DOC_ID you want.

    There's not much help to be had, I'm afraid. See Perl and Google Data API for an earlier related discussion. You might do well enough invoking gdatacopier, which is in Python.
