p4 review


List all submitted changelists above a provided changelist number.


p4 [g-opts] review [-c changelist] [-t countername]


p4 review -c changelist provides a list of all submitted changelists between changelist and the highest-numbered submitted changelist. Each line in the list has this format:

Change changelist username <email-addr> (realname)

The username, email-addr, and realname are taken from the p4 user form for username whenever p4 review is executed.

When used as p4 review -t countername, all submitted changelists above the value of the Perforce counter variable countername are listed. (Counters are set by p4 counter). When used with no arguments, p4 review lists all submitted changelists.

The p4 review command is meant for use in external programs that call Perforce, such as the Perforce change review daemon. The Perforce change review daemon is available from the Perforce Public Depot:


and is documented in the Perforce Server Administrator's Guide: Fundamentals.
