  parent : (or/c (is-a?/c top-level-window<%>) false/c)
   = (finder:dialog-parent-parameter)
This procedure queries the user for a single filename, using a platform-independent dialog box. Consider using finder:put-file instead of this function.

  parent : (or/c false/c (is-a?/c top-level-window<%>)) = #f
This procedure queries the user for a single filename, using a platform-independent dialog box. Consider using finder:get-file instead of this function.

  parent : (or/c (is-a?/c top-level-window<%>) false/c)
   = (finder:dialog-parent-parameter)
This procedure queries the user for a single filename, using a platform-dependent dialog box. Consider using finder:put-file instead of this function.

  parent : (or/c (is-a?/c top-level-window<%>) false/c)
   = (finder:dialog-parent-parameter)
Queries the user for a filename.

If the result of (preferences:get 'framework:file-dialogs) is 'std this calls finder:std-put-file, and if it is 'common, finder:common-put-file is called.

procedure
