GoogleCL provides access to various services from the command line.
Now take for example: Google Contacts, you can see the various contacts in the following format

list_style = title,email

That is, you will be able to see the contacts in the format: name followed by their email ID.

Let’s take a second example:

access = public

This means any upload made through GoogleCL to picassa will have public access. You can change it to private

access = private

Similarly you can choose the editor to open Google Docs files for presentation and spreadsheet. You can learn about the various settings for various services
