P4 Changelist Grabber: A tool for pulling changelists from your Perforce server to a local folder, pulling the revisions of the files in those changelists (and *only* those files / revisions), maintaining directory structure (if desired).
Version: 188.8.131.52The 'P4 Changelist Grabber' provides a quick way to pull one or more changelists from a Perforce server to a local folder of your choice, pulling the revisions of the files in those changelists (and *only* those files / revisions [unless you want the latest revisions, which it can also do]), maintaining the correct directory hierarchy (unless you want a flat-copy, which it can also do) from your depot(s). There is a way to accomplish this goal from within the Perforce visual client, P4V, but it requires multiple steps, can only deal with one changelist at a time, and is generally a hassle.
