How to use os.access()??

I'm trying to use os.access() in my program. But, I'm stuck trying to
figure out the parms... obviously the first is the filename; but the 2nd
is supposed to be a constant (?) like F_OK. Unfortunately, it doesn't
appear that the F_OK, etc are defined anywhere. Either the docs are
wrong (no way!), or I'm missing a module file (likely), or I'm just
totally wrong about everything (quite likely!).
