PayPal API Script help.

Creating an API Signature
An API signature consists of an API user-name along with an associated API password and signature, all of which are assigned by PayPal. The script / application securely stores these credentials and applies them whenever it executes a PayPal API operation to retrieve your transactions. You can revoke these credentials at any time directly through PayPal.
Follow the steps below to create an API signature.
