I am a C++ programmer and I am having problems writing some simple code in C.  I am trying to dtermine if a file exists if it does I would like to append to that file if not I would like create another file to write to.  The file names for each are the same.  The file at question may be removed from time to time that is why I am trying to do this.

try to use

fopen( filename, "a" )

using the mode "a" - means append.
if the file does not exist, it will be created.
I believe this is exactly what you want
