 Roman Numeral verbs in J
[This message is converted from WPS-PLUS to ASCII]


The other night I was helping my nine year daughter with her
math homework.  She is learning Roman numerals.
It had been years (maybe 25+) since I had done anything
with Roman numerals so it was as much a lesson for daddy
as it was for her.

While I was helping her I thought it would be fun to
write J verbs to convert positive integers to and from
roman numerals, e.g.

  NB. "arabictoroman" converts arrays of positive integers (of any rank)
  NB. to boxed roman numeral character list representations (of the same rank)

  ] x1=.  arabictoroman  3 9 13 88 1995

  ] x2=.  arabictoroman   1 + i. 2 2  NB. no zero in Roman Numerals
|I  |III|

  NB. inverse "romantoarabic"

       romantoarabic x1
  3 9 13 88 1995

       romantoarabic x2
  1 2
  3 4

I believe this very problem was solved in this list.  If not
I'd be interested in looking at any J solutions.
