is there an easy way to loop in a script, based on a window or variable?

example -

if a window or file doesn't appear, i want the script to loop a process (not using winwait)


look for c:\complete.txt

if it does not exist, sleep for 5 seconds then look again.

if it finds it, then continue processing the script, if it does not, look again.

In version2, i would use goto commands with error levels, but goto doesn't exist in 3?

any help would be appreciated.

Yea, I use one like this to start up a script on one computer when anouther one updates a file:

While NOT FileExists("P:\removes"&@mon&"-"&@Mday&".txt")

P: is a network drive
