P4DTI issue job000965

TitleUser Guide is out-of-date about Perforce interfaces
Assigned userDavid Jones
DescriptionThe P4DTI user guide has instructions for achieving various job-related tasks using different Perforce interfaces (command-line, p4win, p4web). These instructions were largely based on P4 2001.1 (the current release when the user guide was originally written). Some of the instructions are now out of date; some other tasks are now possible in a given interface when they were not before.
AnalysisReview all the tasks and instructions against the Perforce 2004.2 interfaces.

drj 2004-07-22

Substantial update required for P4Web 2004.2; almost none for anything else.

Links to perforce documentation generally go to http://www.perforce.com/perforce/doc.031/manuals/p4guide/ (for example). These will need changing to .../doc.042/... but as of 2004-07-21 that link is not accessible.

Changed the links anyway in the expectation that they will work when 2004.2 comes out of beta.
