I've been meaning to ask a closely related question, and can't quite figure
out how to apply the FILES$ command to this situation:

I know the _location_ (a global prefsVol% which I've already got), the
_filename_, and the _file type_ (but watch out! the file type _isn't_ the file
type created by my application).

What's the cleanest way of simply checking whether the specified file, and/or
file of specified type, exists in the given location? I don't need to open it
or do anything with it, just look to see whether it's there.
