We're working on a package called "VCP", which is written in Perl. It's
in beta now, we're still working the kinks out of it, but it does what
you want (we hope :-). It's not ported to WinXX, yet, do you have a Unix
host with p4 available? The p4d can be anywhere, but the p4 has to be
on the local Unix host.
The main documentation is at:
If you want to get started, you can install it using CPAN:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install("VCP")'
I've only recently gotten that install process working, there are still
likely to be glitches.
Let me know if you want to play with it.
