The asl.library library provides the release 2.0 Amiga OS with system
standard file and font requesters.  Any application that needs to use a
file or font requester should use asl.library requesters because they are
easy to implement, they are easy for the user to learn, and because they
are the same from one application to the next, they make applications more
user friendly.

This article requires a general understanding of several Amiga concepts:
TagItems and TagLists (see the Utility library Autodocs), Intuition
screens and windows, some of the graphics.library's font structures, and
AmigaDOS pattern matching.
