Group filter for 'p4 users'

It would be helpful to be able to list the users belonging to a group, both directly, and indirectly by virtual of being a member of a sub-group.

So for example 'p4 users -g dev' lists all the users belonging to the group 'dev', and 'p4 users -G dev' lists all users belonging to the group 'dev' or any of its sub-groups (searching all the way down the group hierarchy).

I can meet the first requirement (direct members) with 'p4 group -o dev' and pulling the users from the output.  But the second requirement (indirect members) is a bit more tricky.  I currently have a script to do this, recursively navigating down the group hierarchy, but it would be nice if it was supported out-the-box.

    That command exists already but is with 'p4 groups':


    p4 groups -i peter_richens

    Hello Sven.

    But 'p4 groups -i peter_richens' lists the groups that a user belongs to.

    I'm after the users that are contained within a group, including both direct members and indirect members via sub-groups.  The output should be sorted and duplicates removed (for the case when a user is a direct member and a member of a sub-group, or a member of multiple sub-groups).

    If you want, go over the videos below with your son, and then possibly use a piece of graph paper or paper to invent a game and try to get him to learn how to think of the state of each object, like Health-Points, or for a target Destroyed, it's a good starter:facebook video downloader
