Since most systems have their own protocols and authentication  
mechanisms, you might need to to find a specific task for Perforce.  
I'm not sure how Perforce does its remote communication, but if it  
uses HTTP like SubVersion, you can use the http tasks/types. However,  
you might run into some issues with authentication with those base  
tasks/types. I had to write my own tasks/types because of  
authentication issues.
