URGENT: How to check if file input field is empty

Hi EE

I have written a code in html which asks the user to input a file. When the user submits the form I want to check whether the user has input the form. How can I do it?
The input command in HTML is
<INPUT TYPE=FILE id="Intfile" NAME="IntFile">

Thank you
