Dat File Offsets?

Hi,

It's been a hundred years since I did anything in C (or anything else really) so I'm very rusty. To ease myself into it again I want to code a small DAT file checker for the Amiga (DAT files used with clrmame) but I can't find the file specs anywhere (i.e offsets etc.) for the DAT files.

I've had a quick look at a DAT file in a HEX editor and I think that each record is 155 bytes but like I said I'm rusty ( and lazy ) so was hoping someone had the file offsets for creating/reading a DAT file.

Any help will be appreciated!

Cheers,
Brakus

Errr, CMP dat files are plain text, and there are no fixed offsets (what on earth did you see in that hex editor? ).

Details here: http://www.logiqx.com/DatFAQs/CMPro.php

Edit: Or is this about some ancient format I'm not aware of?
