EXISTFILE Check for file existence. RES = EXISTFILE(FILENAME) returns true if the file FILENAME is existing on the current path and false otherwise. It works similar to EXIST(FILENAME, 'file'), except that it does not find files on the Matlab path~ The function is realized as a mex function (existfile.c). To compile the mex-function, move to the directory where file existfile.c is located and type mex existfile.c If this is the first time you run function MEX on your system, you might have to select a compiler by typing mex -setup If the mex-file (e.g. existfile.mexw32 or existfile.mexglx) is not existing, a (very slow) MATLAB realization is called instead.
