FS#299 - File | Recent Files: non-existent file

When I tried to open a file that I had moved, Koda said “F:\ ... is not exists”. Correct English usage is “does not exist”.

Hm. So, autoit's name "FileExists" is not correct?

Chris Haslam commented on 20.06.2011 14:19

In the AutoIt help for FileExists, I see:

  • in Return value "Returns 0 if path/file does not exist" (which is correct usage), and
  • in the Example, "Does NOT exists" (which is incorrect usage).

Functions with the name "FileExists" are found in many computer languages. Corel PerfectScript has both "FileExists" and "DoesFileExist"; they do exactly the same thing!

Ok, anyway I'll change it to correct language.

BTW, Delphi uses "FileExists" as well. Wonder, why not "FileExist".

BTW, should I change also the messages:

File "%s" already exists.
already exists. Please choose another name.

File "%s" already exists. Overwrite? and File already exists. Please choose another name.

They look, and sound, good to me.
