Such a function has a lot of details to take care of: opening all
the files, copying over files that are added, doing integrates and
deletes.  Then you need a tool that's been discussed here over
the last few days, one that can patch file modifications based on
the output of 'p4 diff'.

The complicating factor to watch out for is that before you open
the files for edit you have to sync them to the same revision to
which the original files were synced.  This may be the revision
at which a file was opened for edit or it may be a revision
to which it was synced and resolved after it was opened.
