At the risk of suggesting the impractical - Greg, you should seriously consider looking at Cygwin if you're doing shell stuff on windows.  cmd.exe kind of sucks.  Maybe there is a newer Microsoft shell that is better, I don't know about recent goings on there.

There is the below and I think the equivalent in cygwin bash would be something like p4 add `cygpath -w \`find src\``

Subject: [p4] Adding with wildcards

I'm trying to add everything under a given directory (recursively), but
the only wildcard that I know that does recursive operations is "...",
and that only seems to work on what is already in perforce.  "*" works
on local files, but isn't recursive.  Are there any wildcards that will
let me what I want?

I have a directory structure:


And I want to do something like:
p4 add d:\src\...
