Download these files to add support for Perforce to VC mode in Emacs
These files, an alternative to p4.el, make the standard Emacs VC
(Version Control) commands support Perforce, e.g., for people who
are familiar with Emacs VC commands and prefer to be able to
continue to use them rather than learning the completely new set of
commands provided by p4.el.
These files will work with the version of VC mode included in Emacs
21 and with any other Emacs variant which uses the version of VC
mode included in Emacs 21. These files will NOT work with the
version of VC mode included in Emacs 20 or earlier.
The functionality provided by this VC support is a subset of the
functionality provided by p4.el. If you'd like to be able to use
both the VC Perforce support and p4.el, you can do so by loading
them both into Emacs and setting p4-do-find-file to nil. If you do
this, then you will use VC commands for Perforce operations related
to individual files but p4.el commands for Perforce operations not
related to individual files (e.g., "p4 submit", "p4 client", "p4
The file p4-lowlevel.el provides a low-level interface to "p4"
commands from within Emacs; if you do Emacs programming and might
benefit from being able to perform Perforce operations in Emacs-lisp
code, you might find this file useful even if you don't want to use
Note that I don't work for Perforce and this code is supported and
maintained by me, not by Perforce.
Please let me know if you have any questions. And *please* report
any bugs you find in this code!
