[p4perl] How do you pronounce Perforce?

When I took the admin class, I was surprised that the instructor pronounced it that way. I had always said it with the emphasis on the 'Per', as in PER-force.

When used in the context of this list, as a proper noun, I usually pronounce it with more or less equal stress on the syllables to
distinguish it from the adverb "perFORCE". Just seems more natural
that way.
