Migrating sources from Perforce to Subversion

I'm trying to migrate our sources from Perforce (P4) repository to
Subversion (SVN).

I've downloaded a Perl script from

Usage of script: ./p42svn.pl --branch
//home/project/packages/modules/MOD1=trunk > svn.dump

Following error is being echoed while dumping into file.

"Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at
./p42svn.pl line 642"
"Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at ./p42svn.pl line

Usage of svn command: svnadmin load myrepos < svn.dump

After successfully creating a dump files I attempted to load it into
empty FSFS type Subversion repository but continually get this error:

"svn: Found malformed header block in dumpfile stream"

This is happened only on binary files if exists under selected path.

Do you have any idea why this might be happening? Did something change
with SVN's dump files since p42svn.pl was written? Please help me.

Thank you,

- Nagarajan P.
