How can I apply a patch which was generated by "p4 diff" or "p4 diff2"? Is there any way to
automatically open the relevant files into a CL and apply the diffs?

Perforce doesn't have a command to apply a patch, but you can use the standard Unix patch utility to apply it. p4 diff2 can generate a Unix compatible patch with the '-u' flag.

Actually if you're an Eclipse user there is a tool we supply to apply patches, but there's nothing like it on the command line.
