**** The perforce back-end is currently broken ****
====== Using Qct with Perforce ======
Perforce does not support extensions, and the Qct standalone application
cannot auto-detect a perforce repository, so a shell alias or batch file
can be useful:
alias p4qct='qct --p4'
For a commit message template, place the template message into a file
and then set P4_LOG_TEMPLATE environment variable to reference that
o Assumes P4CLIENT, P4PORT, P4USER are properly set
o Assumes a valid login to the perforce server
o Will execute out of current directory (cannot find client root)
o Will always use the default changelist
Perforce on Windows:
o You must have the Windows command line tools installed (p4.exe)
o You must override P4DIFF in your environment to run a command line
diff.exe, such as one that comes with cygwin or MinGW.
o The included win32/qct.bat file can be used to call qct with the
necessary --p4 command line option.
Note: In my experience, P4Diff does not work properly as a two-way
merge application, but it should be functional for visual diffs.
PS: The Perforce back-end is not as well tested as I would like. If
you find a bug or find support for a particular p4 feature not to your
liking, please send me an e-mail.
