This package provides VC integration with the Perforce version control system.
This package is quite old and was written for Emacs 23 I think. I'm trying to pull it into the next generation by making it work on Emacs 26.3 at the moment.
Road to v1
Before I can say that I can release version 1.0.0 of this project, I feel that these features need to be present (this list is subject to change):
- Create new changelists.
- Modify existing changelists.
- Delete existing changelists.
- Move files between changelists.
- View changelist info in
View repository information in
vc-dir. (Things like the Client name, current workspace, etc.)
Some of these features may already be present and working and I just haven't discovered them yet, but until I feel confident that it can be done and is part of my workflow, I'm keeping it on the list.
See the change log.
To automatically switch workspaces based on the directory you’re in, make sure that you have the P4CONFIG variable set. If this is set, for example to
.p4config, in any directory that you want to associate with a workspace, add a
.p4config file and add the following line to it:
my_client is the name of the client you want to use.
