How to write an Android app that finds my location in google maps?

I would like to write an Android application that finds my location when I click a virtual button on the screen.

Can you please let me know in detail how to write this code?

Note: I only need the source code information. I can take care of the rest (setting up Eclipse, Anroid SDK and building the app and deploying it).

Google Maps is one of the many applications bundled with the Android platform.
