You could always set your diff application to a script that invokes the
merge application with both theirs and base as the same file. You'd get
three panes, but you would have the ability to select and unselect diff

Subject: [p4] partial file revert?

Here's one feature from emacs+cvs that I really miss.  I haven't come
across anything similar in the perforce world, so I'm posting here in
hopes someone can point me in the right direction.

I habitually review diffs of all modified files before check-in.  When
using emacs' cvs mode, there is a way to go through the diff one chunk
at a time much like the perforce diff tool.  However, I can also
selectively revert a chunk if I change my mind.  Morever, since emacs
is an editor I can actually edit the file right there.

Using P4V, I can diff a file before submitting using CTRL-D, but this
is a read-only view.  I think I could achieve my goals if the merge
tool came up instead.

Any ideas?

P.S.  Is this list configured to silently drop messages that have been
