Hello Perforce Community!

I use Perforce at work, and have always hated the command line tool's output.  It's difficult to read and has no support for paging when running commands like `p4 changes`

So I made something to fix this, and I'd like to share it :)

It's called BP4O (Better P4 Output), and it is a plugin of sorts that overrides the p4 command with a shell function that converts the output of p4 commands into something pretty and adds paging when necessary.

It can be installed with brew, apt-get, yum/dnf, or manually, and it is all open source!

Please let me know what you think.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: p4, stdout, pretty, beautify, bp4o, better output
