|Version||0.146u5||Fixed in Version||0.150||Build|
|Summary||05002: Add all device information to -listxml|
I wanted to do a testrun on all sets using the duart68681, but recognized that only the CPU, sound screen and speaker devices are listed in the -listxml output. -listdevices lists of of them though. Since -listxml is the place for all the information in a parse-able way they should also be added there.

I'm not a fan, as you are aware, of increasing more and more the size of -listxml. This data is readily available from -listdevices output. If anything should happen to -listxml, I'd suggest the <DIPswitch> information be externalized to it's own command (-listdipswitches)?, to keep -listxml listing only data needed for front-end and most utilities.
I understand why you'd want them 'all under one roof' as it would make parsing easier for your application - but as it stands, IMHO, we have enough data being thrown out in -listxml.

|We could do a -listeverything and have MAME just dump every last bit of info. I wouldn't see much issue to adding an additional switch that might be randomly useful to some.|

I agree that DIP switches should not be within the context of -listxml.
Has anyone suggested the -listdipswitches idea to any dev?

|From 0.150 these devices show up in listxml output, too.|
