Well actually, on second thought, I want my script to check to see if the file 
from the business partner is has been uploaded - the partner can be delayed, 
hence no file to transfer.  The script is set to fire off at 9:10PM via cron.  
So, the transfer part of the script says "if the file isn't here, wait 15 
minutes, then transfer, otherwise transfer".  In theory, that should give the 
partner enough time to get the result file to us.  However, that's not 
fool-proof - the partner could be delayed more than 15 minutes.  So, from 
what I've read, maybe a "do while" construct would work better.  But, of 
course, I'm not sure how to write that either.  Anyway, if I use the "if 
then" contruct, as I currently have in my script, it still leaves me with 
finding a way to verify transfer.
