	This routine reads Accelerator Command Language (ACL) code from
	a file or database table.  If the database option is chosen, the
	table which contains the code must be ACL_DB_TABLE.  A value of
	NULL can be passed for any of the returned arguments whose values
	are not needed.

	file_name	null terminated file name
	file_type	type of file
			(ACL_FLAT_FILE -> ASCII text file,
			 ACL_DB_FILE -> "file_name" should be the database
					table name from ACL_DB_TABLE)
	command_text	returned code text with each line terminated by
			a new line character  (The memory for this buffer
			is allocated by this routine and must not be freed
			by the caller.  It will be freed by the next call
			to this routine.)
	command_length	returned total length of the command text
	num_symbols	returned number of symbols created
	num_read_devs	returned number of devices which will be read
	num_set_devs	returned number of devices which may be set
	[options]	read options
			(ACL_OPT_NONE -> no options selected,
			 ACL_OPT_DONT_CLOSE -> leave database connection
					       open upon exit (close later
					       with db_close))

	This function returns ACNET status values as follows:

	OK			success
	CLIB_MEMFAIL		failed in allocating dynamic memory
	CLIB_NOTOPN		failed to open file
	CLIB_INVSIZ		command line too long
	otherwise		other ACNET format error code

	This function requires the following include files:

	ul_acl_h:acl_h, acnet_errors_h
