I've just tested Rebuilder (v0.03) for the first time, and... WOW it flies!
The only need I'd feel for a scanner option would be knowing if I'm missing something after rebuilding.. Not sure if enabling higher logging levels may do just that, to be honest.
Couple questions, if you don't mind
- Any romset generated by the rebuild options (split, full, standalone) can be used by MAME? I'm especially curious about the standalone option.
- Why not using the 7zip library for de/compression, moving forward?
Thanks for yet another excellent tool, Roman!

You can scan them with old clrmamepro.....a new scanner will follow as soon as I find a little time

yes, all generated sets can be used by MAME and yes, the standalone mode can be useful since it offers (for the first time in clrmame history) to have real standalone sets...however, you can't scan them with old cmpro ;-)

7z is on the to do list, I'm currently in close contact with the author of https://github.com/rikyoz/Bit7z waiting for the new version (mainly due to the new licence) and asked for some additional feature requests.

Yes I've seen Bit7z mentioned in the rebuilder readme, I was wondering why not using the 7zip library directly - but I guess it doesn't make a difference in the end.
Anyway great stuff in progress, I'm definitely looking forward to the new Rebuilder (toolset :D) as the future of clrmamepro!
Last but not least, on Linux too!!!
Thanks

bit7z is a nice C++ wrapper for the 7z sdk....believe me, it's no fun to work directly with the 7z sdk code directly....and I don't want to reuse my old 7z code

Now (almost) fully kidding: Rust, anyone? ;)

Forgot to mention: as I plan to make regular use of the new Rebuilder, feel free to involve me as a guinea pig tester for it and any related tools that you might eventually come up with
I'm not a programmer but I have enough compute and storage available to do some serious testing if needed
