SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       int file_exists(const char *filename, int attrib, int *aret);

DESCRIPTION

       beginning of this chapter) exists. If `aret' is not NULL,  it  will  be
       set to the attributes of the matching file. Example:

          /* Check for a normal file. */
