I'm wondering if there's a way to do a conditional import of a file
into Mathematica. Say I wrote some code to process a lot of data and
it takes a long time to complete. After it's done, I save my results
by exporting to a text file. When I come back later (months
later...) to pick up where I left off, I'd like to avoid
inadvertently, and because of poor memory, running that long script
again if I already have the results on my hard drive (you would think
that I'd have the sense to check first, but no).
I was thinking of a script that would work something like this:
If there is a file X
import the file
[message] "The darn thing doesn't exist!"
Reprocess the raw data --- [message] "Better make some coffee."
