routines to check whether a file or a directory exists (in addition
to checking whether it is readable/writable). SmallEiffel
currently only tests whether a file is readable (i.e. can be opened
in read mode) despite the misleading name GENERAL.file_exists.
Is there any plan to support (in FILE_TOOLS for example) a full set
of routines to test whether files and directories are readable,
writable and exist?
