Detect if a filepath exists and resolves the full filepath.

## Install

Install with [npm](https://www.npmjs.com/):

```sh
$ npm install --save detect-file
```

## Usage

```js
var detect = require('detect-file');
```

## API

### [detect](index.js#L34)

Resolve the given `filepath` if it exists.

**Params**

* `filepath` **{String}**: filepath to detect.
* `options` **{Object}**: Additional options.
* `options.nocase` **{Boolean}**: Set this to `true` force case-insensitive filename checks. This is useful on case sensitive file systems.
