What's in a name?


After reading Tony Smith's post on The Benefits of SCM, it occurred to me that many people probably don't realize that our company name of "Perforce" isn't just something made-up, but is actually a pre-existing word; perforce. So, I thought that a simple definition would be appropriate.  It both tells you what the word means, and gives you some insight into of the why of why SCM matters.

"Perforce", adverb: by necessity; by force of circumstance.
