function sql_table(a_sql_portal, a_tests_db, table_label, props)

% sql_table - Create an SQL table from the contents of a tests_db object.
% Usage:
% sql_table(a_sql_portal, a_tests_db, table_label, props)
% Description:
%   Converter function to get a tests_db object properly annotated with
% the metadata obtained from the results of the executed SQL
% query. Currently this function is limited to importing numeric data only.
%   Parameters:
%	a_sql_portal: A sql_portal object.
%	a_tests_db: A tests_db object.
%	table_label: Name of the newly created table.
%	props: A structure with any optional properties.
%   Returns:
% See also: tests_db/tests_db, database, sql_portal/tests_db
