I wrote a small python based linter that I would like to call whenever someone checks in a specific filetype.
I would like this to be run by a change-content trigger that will prevent a commit if the file fails the tests.

This linter will need to be able to read the contents or the specific file that is being updated.

Are there any examples on how to go about this? This could be a file that is checked in, or invoked from the perforce server.

My perforce server version:  P4D/LINUX26X86_64/2017.2/1760971 (2019/02/20)

Thank you,
