I see what you mean. File::Find isn't about "finding files", but is a tool for recoursing through a directory tree, and performing an action on some/all of the files/directories.

To check for the existence of a file/directory you can use the file tests that come with perl itself ( for example if you have a $path, -e $path will return whether the path exists, -d $path will return true if the path is of a directory, and -f $path will return true if the path is of a file
