Wrapper for Unix.LargeFile.lstat

val fstat : file_descr -> stats Lwt.t

Wrapper for Unix.LargeFile.fstat

val file_exists : string -> bool Lwt.t

file_exists name tests if a file named name exists.

Note that file_exists behaves similarly to Sys.file_exists:

  • "file" is interpreted as "directory entry" in this context
  • file_exists name will return false in circumstances that would make stat raise a Unix.Unix_error exception.
