ROMs checker for UNIX
This script will check your ROMs against clrmamepro, No-Intro P/Clone XML and ZAP databases.
- No-Intro site: http://datomatic.no-intro.org/
- Zapatabase site: http://www.zapatabase.com/
It tells you about *uncompressed* ROMs you have/miss, duplicate, unknown or misnamed ROMs.
It then propose you to move or rename your ROMs to match the filenames found in the database.
Usage: roms_checker [options]
-sSET The set to create/use
-rRDIR The ROMs directory to check
-dDAT The database to use (clrmamepro DAT, No-Intro P/Clone XML or ZAP
-c Force creation of ROMs cache
-z Reset SET config file
-y Assume 'yes' to all queries, just do the job dammitall (Backup
valuable files before)
-n Assume 'no' to all queries
-h Get this help message
If no option are given, each parameter in -s, -r and -d are interactively asked, and RDIR and DAT are saved in $WDIR/SET/cfg once the script exits.
SET can be anything except for NES set -which needs to be 'nes'- because of the iNES header skipper.
For each SET already created, you can later change RDIR and/or DAT either by editing the config file in $WDIR or by using the corresponding -r and/or -d option.
Please read the header of the script for more informations and limitations.

It makes use of coreutils, sed, grep, xargs, cksfv (for some older releases), awk (heavily for releases >= 2.40).
