** Here's a short example showing how to create a file requester with
** asl.library.  If AslRequest() returns TRUE then the rf_File and
** rf_Dir fields of the requester data structure contain the name and
** directory of the file the user selected.  Note that the user can type
** in the a name for the file and directory, which makes it possible for
** a file requester to return a file and directory that do not
** (currently) exist.
