NAME

p4delta - Summarize the differences between a Perforce project and local files.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

p4delta [options] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION

Summarizes the differences between a Perforce project and local files, showing the changes of the files themselves and of their contents. Added, changed, and deleted files are denoted with ‘+’, ‘*’, and ‘-’ respectively. The number of lines are displayed.

OPTIONS

-c, --confirm Confirm deleted files with the user before removing them from Perforce. The default is simply to execute the remove command for relevant files. This option is valid only with the --execute option.
-e, --execute Execute the associated Perforce commands (add, edit, and remove) for the added, edited and deleted files.
-f, --force Compare all local files against those in Perforce. The default is to compare only the local files that are opened.
-h, --help Display a help message.
-q, --quiet Run with minimum output.
-v, --version Display the version and exit.
-V, --verbose Run with maximum output.

ARGUMENTS

Arguments may be either files or directories.
File If a file is provided, it is compared against the equivalent in CVS, if any. The .cvsignore files are applied, so that although the file was explicitly provided, it may be ignored.
Directory Directories are processed recursively for files that are not filtered out by .cvsignore files.
File If a file is provided, it is compared against the equivalent in Perforce, if any. .p4ignore files are applied, so that although the file was explicitly provided, it may be ignored.
Directory Directories are processed recursively for files that are not filtered out by .p4ignore files.

EXAMPLES



    % p4delta



Lists the changed files.



    % p4delta --execute



Lists the changed files, and executes the associated add, edit and remove commands.



    % p4delta --execute --confirm



Add, edit and remove the appropriate files, but get confirmation from the user before removing any files.

ENVIRONMENT

$HOME/.p4ignore, .../project/.p4ignore Files and directories may be filtered by .p4ignore files, locate both in the user’s home directory and locally, in each directory. For example:



    *.bak
    *.class
    *.o
    *.out
    *~
    .libs
    logs
    core



See http://www.loria.fr/~molli/cvs/doc/cvs_18.html#SEC170 for how this is used in CVS, from which this idea was taken.

$HOME/.p4deltarc, .../project/.p4deltarc Resource files containing name/value pairs, separated by either ’:’ or ’=’. The valid fields of a .p4deltarc file are as follows, with their default values:



    quiet:   false
    verbose: false
    execute: false
    force:   false



yes and on are synonymnous with true. no and off signify false.

The values in the project .p4deltarc file will override those in the user’s .p4deltarc file. The project .p4deltarc is searched from the current directory up through each parent directory that is in Perforce.

P4DELTAOPTS A string of whitespace-delimited options, the same as listed above. These values override those of the resource files.

NOTES

If a file exists in the Perforce project but not locally, it is assumed that the file has been deleted, not that it may have been recently added by another user. The --confirm option can be used to deal with this situation.
