Installing P4 on Mac OS…

…because for some reason installing P4V doesn’t install the command line tool (and I’m tired of having to Google it).

  • Download the command line client from Perforce –
  • Copy the downloaded file to /usr/local/bin/
  • Make the file executable by running the following in Terminal


cd /usr/local/bin/
chmod +x p4


Why Perforce can’t provide a P4 install is beyond me…
