I have 10 servers that run a process that requires that a specific pipe 
exist.    Periodically the process that creates or deletes the pipe can 
sometimes fubar, and I'm left with a regular file which unleashes holy 

So what I need to do is configure cfengine to detect if this file exists
as a pipe or as a regular file.  If it exists as a regular file delete the
file and create a pipe, and make sure the ownership and permissions are

Does anyone have an idea how I could implement these tests into cfengine?  

I think I've seen an ifFileExists ( ), but I'm not sure that would work.    

Thanks for the help.
