dumpgame [-hV] [--help] [--version]

dumpgame extracts rom set information from a ckmame(1) database. dumpgame can also find roms matching a particular checksum.

dumpgame supports the following options:

, --brief
Use brief mode: don't output ROM and disk information.
, --checksum
Look for a ROM by checksum (instead of the default behaviour to look for a game by name).
dbfile, --db dbfile
Use database dbfile instead of the default “mame.db”.
, --disk
Look for a disk by checksum (instead of the default behaviour to look for a game by name).
, --help
Display a short help message.
, --version
Display program name and version number.

The game argument can also be one of the following special keywords:

Names of the datfiles used for creating the database, and their descriptions.
Name and version of the CMPro XML header skip detector used (if any).
Types of checksums used (crc, md5, sha1). One line each for roms and disks.
Same as /list/game.
List names of all disks in the database.
List names of all games in the database.
List some statistics about the contents of the database.

Location for the database file. Can be overridden with the -D option. Defaults to “mame.db”.

Display rom information for the game “pacman”:

dumpgame pacman
Display all roms matching the checksum “c1e6ab10”:
dumpgame -c c1e6ab10
