I've installed your script and with some hacking to remove the references to
the modules I don't have, and changing file paths etc. I've executed it with
the following results:
$self->Sync() works as expected
$self->Run( "Sync" ) fails as expected.
Perforce commands are case-sensitive (and all in lowercase). The AUTOLOADER
method in P4.pm lowercases the method names to make sure they run correctly,
but when you call $self->Run( "Sync", ... ) you're bypassing the AUTOLOADER
and trying to run 'p4 Sync' and Perforce doesn't like that.

That looks OK to me. My guess is that was executed when you were using
$p4->Sync(). There's no log entry for unknown commands. That sync may have
failed for other reasons which would have been in $self->Errors() or
In your fetchFile() method you've got:
my $val = $self->Sync( "-f", "$url");
print "return value $!\n";
We may have already covered this in another message, but it's $val that
contains the output, not $!. Printing $val makes a lot more sense when
debugging. Also you might want to add a call to P4::Errors() and
P4::Warnings() to report any errors and warnings that occurred.
Also, it would help to know which build of P4Perl you're using? What's the
VERSION in P4.pm?
