A command-line tool for verifying console and arcade ROMs against published ROM set DAT files.
For users familiar with ROM management, the goal of this tool is to implement some of the verification and file management features found in [ClrMamePro](https://mamedev.emulab.it/clrmamepro/).
There are a few groups that publish a collection of metadata for ROMs used in legacy gaming systems and arcades. In some cases the data is simply a “best-of” list for defining complete ROM set. For emulators like [MAME](https://github.com/mamedev/mame/releases) ([split](https://github.com/libretro/fbalpha/tree/master/dats)) or [FBA](https://github.com/libretro/fbalpha/tree/master/dats), a ROM may not work correctly when used with older versions of a ROM.
Simple ROM Manager (SRM) can be used to quickly manage ROMs into a collection by confirming ROMs that are _good_, _bad_, and _missing_ and by renaming and/or re-packaging the files.
- srm init command to put the current directory under management.
Setup a top-level directory containing all of the ROMs referenced inside of a DAT file.
` $ cd ~/MyRoms/System $ srm init `
It’s unlikely that your OS package manger contains a version of SRM. For now, you can install using PIP:
`bash $ pip3 install srm `
