To have a file requester displayed under AmigaDOS
I'm writing an AmigaDOS script in order to use with adf.device and would like to have a file requester displayed to specify which adf to mount. In directory opus I create a button and type the following:

Insertdisk UNIT 0 {Rf}
Diskchange ad0:

{Rf} means file requester. If it wasn't possible to specify a file in opus I would have to type the name of the file under amigados every time like

Insertdisk UNIT 0 test.adf

Is there a {Rf} equivalent in amigados? I don't want to use opus for mounting adfs, I'll just create scripts and using moretools, I'll call these scripts from the tools menu

I'm not sure this is available under AmigaDOS but I'm sure you can access this functionality through ARexx.

How? beats me, I lost all my mad (?!) Arexx skillz

Just use the CLI command REQUESTFILE the output is like "FILENAME" ;)
