    is the dir there ?

    from my c++ console prog, i need to find out if a directory exists.
    in windows, all(even empty ones) have \folder\nul
    does unix have something similar ?

    doing the easy way again

    you will have to mount your windows partition first into say something like /mnt/windows


    then system(find /mnt/windows -type d -name "yourdirectoryname" -print)

    --> "/directory/foobar", "w+"

    what's the "w+" ?

    basically i'm in my home dir.
    in my home dir there is a dir called saves,
    i need to see it if exists.

    (It's done for my windows section, but it needs to work on linux)
