[p4perl] $p4->Run('depots')?

I started with P4Perl in the context of vsstop4. I've found the style  
of vsstop4 to be understandably dated. In the interest of  
understanding this wheel, I've been taking it apart and rewriting it.  
What I'm currently after is to see if a depot exists, obliterate  
everything in it, drop it, and recreate it. Which would be a useful  
thing to be able to do as I add functionality to my rewrite of  
vsstop4 and wish to re-run the conversion of a small vss test  

Below is a script which attempts to list the depots. It is running  
with P4 version 3.5708 on ActiveState Perl 5.6.1 (build 638). The  
output follows. I can't see how the error message given can be correct.

Any help or insight would be appreciated. Is it possible to list,  
drop and add a depot using P4Perl? If so, how?



#!perl -s -w
use strict;
use warnings;
use Carp;
use lib '.';
use convert;
use P4;
my ($p4, @p4err, $result);
$p4 = P4->new();

$p4->Connect() or croak "Unable to connect to p4 $convert::p4port: $! 

print "[Depots]\n";
if ($p4->ErrorCount) { print for $p4->Errors; }
print "\n";

print "[Info]\n";
$result = $p4->Info;
print "$_ => $result->{$_}\n"  for keys %$result;
print "\n";
