Load a shared object or DLL. After loading the Entry
function is called without arguments. The default entry function
is composed from =install_=, followed by the file base-name.
E.g., the load-call below calls the function
install_mylib(). If the platform prefixes extern functions
with =_=, this prefix is added before calling.
|FileSpec||- is a specification for absolute_file_name/3. If searching
the file fails, the plain name is passed to the OS to try the default
method of the OS for locating foreign objects. The default definition
of file_search_path/2 searches <prolog home>/lib/<arch> on Unix and
<prolog home>/bin on Windows.|
