I would like to login to Perforce(P4) from the command line. I tried using

p4 -u My_Username login

But how do I provide the password. I need this to check-in a file from the command line.

First: instead of doing "-u My_Username" on every command, do:

p4 set P4USER=My_Username

Now you can just run:

p4 login

It will give you a prompt ("Enter password:" or something like that).  Type in your password and push the Enter key.
