[p4] P4 C/C++ API's experience

It is not similar to P4Perl. If you understand the C/C++ API many things 
about P4Perl are clear, but there's not much about P4Perl that will help 
you with the C/C++ API.

Robert Cowham has some writings on his blog and did a presentation at 
the User Conference on using the C/C++ API. That and Perforce's 
documentation in the tarball comprise the extent of the documentation as 
I know it. There are also several projects in the Public Depot that may 
be useful as examples. WebKeeper is one example that I know off the top 
of my head.
