It is the same binary. Assuming you're running p4d 2013.1 too? $ p4 info [..] Server version: P4D/LINUX26X86_64/2013.1/610569 (2013/03/19) I'm using these p4 client settings: Options: noallwrite noclobber nocompress unlocked nomodtime normdir SubmitOptions: submitunchanged LineEnd: unix Running "strace -vf -s 2000 p4 print -q symlink" shows that the newline is embedded in the response from p4d: read(7, "...\0\0\0symlink-target\n\0func\0\23...", 4096) = 277 Also the file depot/symlink,v in the p4d depot area includes the \n in the RCS file too, somewhat surprisingly: $ cat depot/symlink,v head 1.6; [..] @@ text @symlink-target @ > I will also check with coworkers here to see how their client behaves. > > This code only happens on utf16 files.

That's annoying behavior, but not used by git-p4 fortunately. The "-o -" option is only used for odd utf16 files where "p4 print" generates invalid output. -- Pete -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
