I assume you mean 2005.1 since 2005.2 has not yet been released.

What do you mean by "import information in flat files"? If you just 
mean putting the file under revision control, use 'p4 add'. If you 
mean importing metadata from flat files, you need to do some 
scripting for that to happen. What are you really trying to accomplish?

BTW, if all you're looking for is 'p4 add' I recommend you go through 
the user guide to see what Perforce can really do.
