p4 changes

Synopsis

List submitted and pending changelists.

Syntax

p4 [g-opts] changes [-i -t -l -L -c client -m max -s status -u user] [file[RevRange]...]

Description

Use p4 changes to view a list of submitted and pending changelists. When you use p4 changes without any arguments, all numbered changelists are listed. (The default changelist is never listed.)

By default, the format of each line is:

If you use the -t option to display the time of each changelist, the format is:

The status value appears only if the changelist is pending. The description is limited to the first 31 characters unless you provide the -L flag for the first 250 characters, or the -l flag for the full description.

If you provide file patterns as arguments, the changelists listed are those that affect files matching the patterns, whether submitted or pending.

Revision specifications and revision ranges can be included in the file patterns. Including a revision range lists all changes that affect files within the range; providing a single revision specifier lists all changes from 1 to the specified revision.

Use the -c client and -u user flags to limit output to only those changelists made from the named client workspace or the named user.

Use the -s status flag to limit output to only those changelists with the provided status (pending or submitted) value.

You can combine flags and file patterns to substantially limit the changelists that are displayed. You can also use the -m max flag to further limit output to max changes.

The command p4 changelists is an alias for p4 changes.
