If you do, you'll have to replace it with %23 to refer to it.
(See the command reference under File Specifications.)

# is a reserved character in Perforce. Of course, it's also
meaningful to a number of shells and environments and may
truncate the file name if you're not careful since it usually
indicates the beginning of a comment.

Is it good practice to have filenames containing the # sign in the
depot, for instance:


perforce-user mailing list  -  perforce-user at perforce.com
