|File.Exists||Part of File module|
|Syntax|| File.Exists (pathName : string) : boolean|
|Description|| File.Exists returns true if a file by the name of pathName exists. It will return false if pathName is a directory.|
|Details|| If the File.Exists returns false, you can examine Error.Last or Error.LastMsg for more information (i.e. whether the path failed or the file was simply not found).|
|Example|| This program loops until the user types in a path name that either doesn't already exist or is allowed to be overwritten.|
var pathName : string var choice : string loop put "Enter file name to write results to" .. get pathName if File.Exists (pathName) then put "Overwrite ", pathName, "?" .. get choice exit when choice = "y" else exit end if end loop
|Execute||An example program is available that creates a file in the current
directory, tests for its existence using File.Exists and
deletes the file using File.Delete.
|Status|| Exported qualified.|
This means that you can only call the function by calling File.Exists, not by calling Exists.
