Does perl 6 have an equivalent to bash's "-f" to
see if a file exists? Or is that a system call?
IO::Path's .f method. (Or .e to not require it to be a file, etc. as
pyanfar Z$ 6 '".profile".IO.f.say'
How do I get this to give me a "False" instead of crashing
and wagging the finger at me?
$ perl6 -e 'say "eraseme.txt".IO.f;'
$ perl6 -e 'say "erasxeme.txt".IO.f;'
Failed to find '/home/linuxutil/erasxeme.txt' while trying to do '.f'
in block <unit> at -e line 1
method f(--> Bool:D)
Returns True if the invocant is a path that exists and is
a file. The method will fail with X::IO::DoesNotExist if
the path points to a non-existent filesystem entity.
maybe it is suppose to crash?
