I rarely define such subroutines without also defining the inverse. And once you have the inverse it seems like the most natural thing to do is use it to set up a straight forward table-driven version of the required routine:

#! perl -sw use 5.010; use strict; use constant _1to9 => [ '', qw[ I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX ] ] +; use constant _10to90 => [ '', qw[ X XX XXX XL L LX LXX LXXX XC ] ] +; use constant _100to900 => [ '', qw[ C CC CCC CD D DC DCC DCCC CM ] ] +; sub dec2roman { my $dec = shift; die "Bad input' unless $dec =~ m[^[0-9]+$] and $dec < 4e3; my @decDigits = split '', $dec; my $roman = ''; $roman .= 'M' x shift @decDigits if @decDigits == 4; $roman .= _100to900->[ shift @decDigits ] if @decDigits == 3; $roman .= _10to90-> [ shift @decDigits ] if @decDigits == 2; $roman .= _1to9-> [ shift @decDigits ] if @decDigits == 1; return $roman; } sub roman2dec { state %roman2dec; %roman2dec = map{ dec2roman( $_ ), $_ } 1 .. 3999 unless %roman2de +c; my $roman = uc shift; return $roman2dec{ $roman } if exists $roman2dec{ $roman }; die "Input '$roman' out of range (1..3999 (roman) inclusive)"; } for my $r ( qw[ XLII LXIX mi MMMCMLXXXVIII ] ) { printf "%15s : %d\n", $r, roman2dec($r); }

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
