If I understand what you are asking here, you get the list of Perforce
files in the current client view (kinda the equivalent of an SVN working
copy) with the "p4 have ./..." command:
$ p4 help have
have -- List revisions last synced
p4 have [ file ... ]
List revisions of named files that were last synced from the depot.
If no file name is given list all files synced on this client.
The format is
depot-file#revision - client-file
$ p4 have ./...
//depot/main/Apps/ActivePython-devel/README.txt#9 - c:\trentm\as\ActivePython-devel\README.txt
- Why "./..."?
Firstly, you need to specify a path argument because otherwise p4
defaults to the *whole* client view, which may (and likely does)
include directories outside of your current dir.
Secondly, "..." is Perforce's way of say "recursively under the given
directory". So "./..." as a path argument effectively makes a p4
command behave like an svn/cvs command's default: recursively under
the current dir.
- If you *do* get into the business of doing this Perforce stuff, you
may want to steal from or use my "p4lib.py" (either of which you are welcome
todo -- MIT license):
which provides parsing of some of the common p4 commands. (It is not
perfect and arguably the Right Thing for Python/Perforce bindings
would use Perforce's C++ API. 'p4lib.py' does have the benefit of
being pure Python.)
>>> import p4lib, sys, pprint
>>> sys.displayhook = pprint.pprint
>>> p4 = p4lib.P4()
