Im using some code to list the contents of a directory as a
, and Im wanting to add in some fail safes.
How would I go about checking if the directory exists first of all? If it doesnt exist, I want to output a message saying it doesnt exist.
Similarly, if the directory is empty I want to ouput that too.
