    Geo::Distance::Google - Google Maps Distance API

      use Geo::Distance::Google;

      my $geo = Geo::Distance::Google->new; 

      my $distance = $geo->distance(
        # sears tower... wacker tower whatever
        origins      => '233 S. Wacker Drive Chicago, Illinois 60606',
        destinations => '1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA'

      printf "The distance between: %s and %s is %s\n",

    Geo::Distance::Google provides a distance and duration functionality
    using Google Maps API.

    Create new geo distance object.

      $geo = Geo::Distance::Google->new( https => 1 );
      $geo = Geo::Distance::Google->new( language => 'ru' );
      $geo = Geo::Distance::Google->new( gl => 'ca' );

   Parameters (all are optional)
    *   ua - LWP::UserAgent object or compatiable

    *   host - url of api host

    *   language - Google's response will be in this language (when possible
        by google)

    *   region - region for usage

    *   sensor - true (1) when pulling data from GPS sensor

    *   mode - mode of transport (default: driving)

    *   avoid - restrictions applied to directions (supports 'tolls' or

    *   https - set to true will make requests with https

    *   debug - true will output internal debugging info

    You can optionally use your Maps Premier Client ID, by passing your
    client code as the "client" parameter and your private key as the "key"
    parameter. The URL signing for Premier Client IDs requires the
    *Digest::HMAC_SHA1* and *MIME::Base64* modules. To test your client, set
    the environment variables GMAP_CLIENT and GMAP_KEY before running

      GMAP_CLIENT=your_id GMAP_KEY='your_key' make test

      $distance = $geo->distance( 
        origins      => '233 S. Wacker Drive Chicago, Illinois 60606',
        destinations => '1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA'

      # multiple origins
      $distance = $geo->distance( 
        origins      => [ 
          'One MetLife Stadium Drive, East Rutherford, New Jersey 07073, United States',
          '602 Jamestown Avenue, San Francisco, California 94124'
        destinations => '1265 Lombardi Avenue, Green Bay, Wisconsin 54304'

      # lat and lng
      $distance => $geo->distance( 
        origins      => '34.101063,-118.3385319',
        destinations => '34.1613743,118.1676149'

    Queries *$geo* to Google Maps distance API and returns list reference
    that contains each origin to destination mapping.

    Data returned from second example above looks like:

          'origin_address' => 'MetLife Stadium, 102 Stadium Rd, East Rutherford, NJ 07073, USA',
          'destinations' => [
              'distance' => {
                 'value' => 1587392,
                  'text' => '1,587 km'
               'status'   => 'OK',
               'duration' => {
                 'value' => 60332,
                 'text'  => '16 hours 46 mins'
               'address' => '1265 Lombardi Ave, Green Bay, WI 54304, USA'
           'origin_address' => '602 Jamestown Ave, San Francisco, CA 94124, USA',
           'destinations' => [
               'distance' => {
                 'value' => 3615562,
                 'text'  => '3,616 km'
               'status' => 'OK',
               'duration' => {
                 'value' => 127697,
                 'text'  => '1 day 11 hours'
               'address' => '1265 Lombardi Ave, Green Bay, WI 54304, USA'

    When you'd like to pass non-ascii string as a location, you should pass
    it as either UTF-8 bytes or Unicode flagged string.

    Accessor method to get and set UserAgent object used internally. You can
    call *env_proxy* for example, to get the proxy information from
    environment variables:


    You can also set your own User-Agent object:

      $coder->ua( LWPx::ParanoidAgent->new );

    I borrowed much of this inital code from "Geo::Coder::Google", it sped
    up much of my work and was a great help. Thanks.
