Unfortunately, this doesn't have any information on using Powerbuilder.
The other link you sent just stated that Powerbuilder should work, but
isn't certified. Still, that's something.

I've pretty much gotten the support of management, at least for
something in the price range of Perforce, but some of the developers are
ambivalent. They don't see the need for it, even though the need has
shown it's self again and again. Not a big problem, except that means
I'll have to walk them through the use of whatever tool we use, so it's
better if I understand it completely first. I've downloaded the two
person evaluation and another developer and I are going to set that up
and play with it next week. That should give me some better ideas on
how to manage our setup.
