The _DIREXISTS function determines if a designated file path or folder exists and returns True or False.


Syntax:

IF _DIREXISTS(filepath$) THEN


  • The filepath parameter can be a literal or variable string path value.
  • The function returns -1 when a path or folder exists and 0 when it does not.
  • The function reads the system information directly without using a SHELL procedure.
  • The function will use the appropriate Operating System path separators. _OS$ can determine the operating system.
  • This function does not guarantee that a path can be accessed, only that it exists.
  • NOTE: CD drives may request a disk when empty! To find drives in Windows, use this API Library: Disk Drives
