P4DTI issue job000811

TitleP4DTI doesn't work with Perforce 2003.2beta
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionPerforce 2003.2beta has a new format for the output of "p4 -G info", in which each information line is tagged (like p4 -ztag output). The P4DTI uses "p4 -G info" to determine the Perforce server features (using the server changelevel). It isn't expecting the 2003.2beta format, and does not accept it.
AnalysisCan run "p4 info" without "-G" and parse the output. We have to parse anyway to get the changelevel. This makes it more like the code for finding the client changelevel (which parses the output of "p4 -V").
