status-code
See Library Routines - Key.

On Entry:

filename
The file to look for. The name can contain a path, and is terminated by a space. If no path is given, the current directory is assumed.

This routine does not work with filenames containing wildcard characters.

On Exit:

cblte-fe-filesize
The size of the file in bytes.
cblte-fe-filedate
The date the file was created.
cblte-fe-filetime
The time the file was created.

Comments:

CBL_CHECK_FILE_EXIST is not stripe-aware. If you use this routine on a file for which striping is enabled, the details returned refer to the first stripe only. Therefore, use this routine on an individual stripe only and refer to the stripe by the stripe name.

You can check the success of the call by examining RETURN-CODE.
