Perforce is the company that made the SCM product.
There are great white paper about code management and quality. I already read two of them : SCM Best Practices, I learn a lot about what SCM is and how important it can be, and
Seven Pillars of Pretty Code, where i saw that he recommends spaces after and before the parenthesis, like this :
if ( a == b )
which I like, but not a so common practice.
It remember me of an old article on evolt.org : PHP coding guidelines.

Today, the 13/10/2004, I downloaded the final JDK 5 (1.5.0-b64) from Sun.
Mandrake 10.0 Official is shipped with a custom Java 1.4.2-03. So, the 26/06/2004, I already installed the beta Java 1.5.0-beta2 RPM from Sun.
The install from Sun or Mandrake are a little bit different :
You can get usefull info from Mandrake’s KnowledgeBase and Mozilla/Firefox plugin doc.
I will check the SRPMS from JPackage too !
You can find what a RPM package do with
rpm -q --scripts jdk
and the files it contains with
rpm -q -l jdk
Note that you must give the short name “jdk” and that the full name “jdk-1_5_0-linux-i586.rpm” won’t work !!!
