You want your client spec to look something like this:

 # A Perforce Client Specification.
 Client:	username-somename-somemachine
 Owner:	username
 Created by username.
 Root:	/Users/username/p4/somename
 Options:	noallwrite noclobber compress unlocked nomodtime normdir
 LineEnd:	local
   //webkit/M3/... //username-somename-somemachine/webkit/...

You can edit your client spec by running:
p4 -u username -p opensource.adobe.com:10666 -P yourpassword client username-somename-somemachine

After editing your client spec, run:
p4 -u username -p opensource.adobe.com:10666 -P yourpassword -c username-somename-somemachine sync

Hope this helps,

Hi Chris,

The instructions at <http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Using_Perforce_with_the_Adobe_Source_Libraries
 > do not appear to work for getting a copy of the WebKit tree.  The instructions there seem to deal with 3 paths within the repository
-- //media, //release, and //submission.  Attempting to use the p4 command-line client to access //webkit/M3/WebKit results in a strange error message: "Error in client specification. Mapping '//webkit/...'  
is not under '//media/...'".  I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Perforce, so perhaps I'm doing something silly.
