## @deftypefn{Function File} ex = fexist (file, tspec, aspec)
## Checks whether a file exists.
## @var{file} is the queried file path.
## @var{tspec} is a combination of letters f,d,p,S, corresponding
## to file types:
## @itemize
## @item f: regular file
## @item d: directory
## @item p: named pipe (FIFO special file)
## @item S: socket
## @end itemize
##
## The query is true if the actual file type matches any of 
## the specified options.
##
## @var{aspec} is a combination of letters r,w,x, corresponding
## to queried access privileges to the file. The query is true
## if the current user has all the spefied types of access, either
## through "user", "group" or "other" specs.
##
## @seealso{stat, lstat}
