In OCaml

let explode str = let rec aux pos acc = if pos < 0 then acc else aux (pred pos) (str.[pos] :: acc) in aux ((String.length str)-1) [] let d2a = function | 'M' -> 1000 | 'D' -> 500 | 'C' -> 100 | 'L' -> 50 | 'X' -> 10 | 'V' -> 5 | 'I' -> 1 | _ -> failwith "Incorrect character" let r2d str = List.fold_left (fun acc x -> let x' = d2a x in acc + x' - acc mod +x' * 2) 0 (explode (String.uppercase str));;
  • explode just converts a string into a list of its characters. The future standard library for OCaml, named Batteries included will include such a function by default.
  • The functional nature of OCaml allows a natural implementation of the algorithm

[Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
[marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
[marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
