Using @Prompt To Select A File

This is an undocumented (and neat) way to use @Prompt to get the user to select
a file from the windows file system.
result := @Prompt([LOCALBROWSE]; "Title Bar for Local Browse Dialog"; "This
argument does nothing but must be provided");
@Prompt([OK]; "Local Browse Results"; "You selected " + @If(@Text(result) = "";
"nothing!"; @Text(result)))
