file_exists () works fine with reletive paths, but seems to not work with absolute paths, or paths starting with '../'

this works fine:
if(file_exists(test/123)) {
            die ("error message");

this does not work:
if(file_exists(/tmp/test/123)) {
            die ("error message");

this does not work:
if(file_exists(../../tmp/test/123)) {
            die ("error message");

thanks... atom
