I have used os.path.exists() many a times for any file system paths in local
system. But this does not seem to work for an Http path.


To check is the Results folder exists at the following path, I do:

if not os.path.exists("http://subversion.myCom.com/Testing/Results"):
    print 'Path does not exist'

This always prints the above print statements whether or not the Results
folder exists or not.

Is there any such function to check existence of files. / folder at Http

Thanks and regards,
