in reply to How to test if a directory exists?

to make it a whole here comes all of it (I think):

-r File or directory is readable -w File or directory is writable -x File or directory is executable -o File or directory is owned by user -R File or directory is readable by real user, not effective user (di +ffers from -r for setuid programs) -W File or directory is writable by real user, not effective user (di +ffers from -w for setuid programs) -X File or directory is executable by real user, not effective user ( +differs from -x for setuid programs) -O File or directory is owned by real user, not effective user (diffe +rs from -o for setuid programs) -e File or directory exists -z File exists and has zero size (directories are never empty) -s File or directory exists and has nonzero size (the value is the si +ze in bytes) -f Entry is a plain file -d Entry is a directory -l Entry is a symlink -S Entry is a socket -p Entry is a named pipe (a "fifo") -b Entry is a block-special file (like a mountable disk) -c Entry is a character-special file (like an I/O device) -u File or directory is setuid -g File or directory is setgid -k File or directory has the sticky bit set -t isatty() on the filehandle is true -T File is "text" -B File is "binary" -M Modification age in days -A Access age in days -C Inode-modification age in days
