I just submitted a Perforce (p4) changelist that I need to make a small modification to in order to correct a build. How do I unsubmit a recently submitted p4 changelist?

In most configuration management systems, I'd submit a new modification with the change you wanted to make in the first place. Is there some reason that this cannot be done? – mdpc Sep 4 '12 at 19:23
While that's probably possible in this case, I ask because I'm interested in knowing how to roll back a change in P4 and there aren't many great sources of answers for this via web search. – calvinf Sep 4 '12 at 20:17

You can use p4 sync, and edit/resolve/submit to back out a submitted changelist. For detailed instructions take a look at:

Hope that helps.
