ccollab addp4diffs

Applies to Collaborator 14.5, last modified on June 13, 2024


The ccollab addp4diffs command uploads differences between arbitrary versions of files in Perforce. The differences are generated using the native p4 diff2 command of Perforce.

Command Line Syntax

ccollab [global-options] addp4diffs [--upload-comment <value>] <review> [<p4-diff-arg> [<p4-diff-arg> ...]]

Command Options




--upload-comment <value>


Comment used to upload files (defaults to command-line arguments)



Identifier of the desired review (an integer number), or a new, ask, or last keyword. Where keywords define the following behaviour:

  • new - the command will create a new review,
  • ask - the command will pause execution and prompt for the identifier of the desired review,
  • last - the command will use the last review that was created on the current machine via Command-Line Client (that is, it does not know about reviews created elsewhere).

<p4-diff-arg> [<p4-diff-arg> ...]


Options which should be passed to the p4 diff2 command


Do not use diff arguments that affect the diff output such as -q, -t, -d<flag>, or -s<flag>. The Collaborator command-line client will automatically select an output format that ensures you will get all the data you need on the server.
