I found this in the docs.

     file_exists(S)
     Attempts to open the file specified by the string S. The current
     directory and all library directories specified by the Library_Path
     or +L options are also searched. See Library Paths for details.
     Returns 1 if successful and 0 if unsuccessful.

But it only works if you know the name of the file beforehand. I am 
testing other people's code and there are about 1000 files to check...
