One odd reason for using Perforce is how it handles large files better than other options like Git and Subversion. Whatever odd reason you have for using Perforce, you might be wondering how to install it through homebrew.

The Homebrew team moved Perforce-related formulae to a new repository called homebrew binary.

This would usually work:

brew tap homebrew/binary
brew install perforce
brew install perforce-server

In case you get errors related to SHA1 or checksum mismatch, I think the repository I maintain will work better.

brew untap homebrew-binary/ruby
brew tap katgironpe/homebrew-binary
brew install perforce
brew install perforce-server

Of course, you can just download these on the Perforce website.
