ZIPIdent has been created to assist in the management of unemulated or 'needed soon' ROM collections. Anyone who possesses such a collection (emu developers for example) may find it difficult to spot games that become emulated and then remove them from the unemulated collection. ZIPIdent will identify ZIPs that should not be classified unemulated and if desired will even move them out of the 'unemulated' collection and into a separate directory.
It is quite similar to MAME's '-romident' function except for the fact that it processes entire ROM collections, not just an individual ZIP. ZIPIdent probably has some additional logic that '-romident' doesn't contain too (not checked).
