I was directed here by Nexy, who said you guys were the people who could help me:
I've written a program that builds a library and configures fe's from roms dragged onto it.
Files with extensions that are exclusive to an emulated console (.nes) are identified and processed, but .zip, .bin, .rom, .iso, etc...(e.g: extensions for files that many emulated consoles share) must be indexed using a hash of some kind.
I need to query every file's hash in a given directory/subdir against every known hash for every known rom ever stored.
So I guess I'd need a huge db file or many db's that I can compile.
I'm BRAND NEW to dumping and have only a vauge idea of how all these tools work, but ideally I'd need the hash checker to spit out something like this:
MATCH: MD5 af8094t0u34rete93423r
ROM: Superman (JAP) [b2] (1997) (Stupidsoft)
SYSTEM: Super Sega
