Subject Re: Refreshing the source files before the build starts (Perforce)
Date Mon, 14 Aug 2006 14:18:15 GMT

Prashanth, the Perforce checkout does not use the -f (force) sync flag.  If
you delete files by hand, it will not pull them down again.  You have three

1) Don't do this.  You shouldn't be mucking about directly on your build
server.  It's a bad idea in general.
2) Force a sync by hand after you make local changes.  You will need to
ensure you use the same clientspec used by Continuum.
3) Delete the entire Continuum working directory.  If the directory does
not exist, it will resync everything.
