tried to rename my Client from "psperson_newguy_winxp" to
"psperson_newguy_win8.1" (or "psperson_newguy_win8_1" if the "."
causes problems) but found that this could not be done directly.
Instead, I would have had to create a new ClientSpec and remove the
old one, something not feasble with open files. Not to mention that
the change history of "psperson_newguy_winxp" would (I presume) be
I am using P4Win, which may be limiting my options.
This is a question about alternative techniques:
Is it possible to use p4 to edit a Clientspec so as to change its
name? Will this transfer the change history to the new name?
Note: it's not possible here because the command-line client persists
in using an incorrect command line for viw. Any ideas on where the
command-line client is getting its information from? Not the registry,
and not P4Win.
And this is one about the normal practice in Open Watcom:
Does it matter if the history is lost? If so, is it considered proper
to leave the old ClientSpec unremoved?
