I have been tasked with changing a bunch of our old submitted changelists descriptions.   We have a tag at the beginning of the changelist description that we are using to identify certain things about the changelist, and we need to change one of the tags.  I know I can use "p4 changes -u {changelist#}" to make a change, but that pops up an editor window, and I need to make this change on ~10k changelists.   Do any of you know a way to do this?

Personally I would not attempt to edit them by hand. :)

If you are comfortable with scripting  you can use our scirpting API to iterate through the changes programatically. See P4.Iterate:


Do setup a test environment to test it!
