Sure, it looks like this:

FILE * mp3_file = open("folder/.mymp3.mp3", 0_RDONLY);

if (mp3_file < 0)
{

  // File was not found

}

else
{
  // File was found

}

Could it be that I'm trying to check for the existence of a
dotfile? In any case, open() is not returning a negative value,
even though I know that the file/path is phony.

Thanks,

Danan
