Syntax


p4 [g-opts] labels [-t] [-u user] [[-e|-E]filter -m max] [file[revrange]]
p4 [g-opts] labels [-t] [-u user] [[-e|-E]filter -m max] [-a | -s serverID ]
p4 [g-opts] labels -U

Description

p4 labels lists all the labels known to the Perforce service in the form:

Label labelname date description

Use the -t option to display the time of the last update to the label.

Label labelname date time description

To see a list of loaded static labels that tag specific files, specify a file pattern, with an optional revision range. (Because automatic labels refer to all files in the label view at a specified revision range, automatic labels are not shown when you use p4 labels with a file pattern.)

Use the -m max option to limit the output to the first max labels.

Use the -e or -E filter options to limit the output to labels whose name matches the filter pattern. The -e option is case-sensitive, and -E is case-insensitive.

Use the -u user option to limit the output to labels owned by the named user.

Options

-t

Display the time as well as the date of the last update to the label.

-u user

-e filter

-E filter

List only labels matching filter (case-insensitive).

-m max

List only the first max labels.

-U

List labels in the unload depot. For details, see p4 unload.
