Subject: [p4] 'user -f username' with standard input?

Hi everyone, 

I'm writing a Java/JSP Interface to the Perforce command line client. 
Right now I'm working with the ability to change user descriptions. 
The interface runs under the superuser account. 

I need to be able to submit the forms of other users via standard input, 
similar to using 'p4 user -f username' but with standard input reading 
the form and not using the editor. 

Look at the description of the user command at: 

It appears that this is not possible, as there is no way to specify the -i
with a user argument. 

Does anyone know any way I could achieve this? 
Perhaps I have missed something while digging through documenation. 

Thanks for any help!
