According to the documentation boost::filesystem::exists returns a bool to indicate if the path exists, an exception is thrown if something ... exceptional ... happens. ;-)

>From the documentation:

bool exists(const path& p);
bool exists(const path& p, system::error_code& ec);
Returns: exists(status(p)) or exists(status(p, ec)), respectively.

Throws: filesystem_error; overload with error_code& throws nothing.
