Rollback vs Back Out in perforce
Both of these operations restore a set of files to a previous state. The difference being:
Back Out Submitted Changelist X
The restore operation is restricted to the files submitted in changelist X.
Rolling back can involve any number of files and to any point. You tell Perforce what point you want to rollback to (a specific rev, CL, label). The files are restored to the state that they were in at that point in time (a specific rev, CL, label).
