I wrote a Perl 6 version (transcoded from the Perl 5 version), which uses the following improvements:
  • Instead of another scope for %rtoa, I used a state variable (also available in perl-5.10)
  • I wrote the "pipeline" as a set of method calls, which means they are read in the order that they are executed
  • Use of a formal parameter
  • say instead of print (also available in 5.10)
  • (Updated) use hyphens instead of underscores as word separator in the sub name. It's a matter of taste, but I like it better that way.

Here's the code, which works with today's Rakudo:

sub roman-to-dec($x) { state %rtoa = M=>1000, D=>500, C=>100, L=>50, X=>10, V=>5, I=>1; $x.uc.split('').map({ %rtoa{$_} }).reduce: { $^a+$^b-$a%$b*2 } } my @testdata = <XLII LXIX mi>; for @testdata -> $r { say "$r: ", roman-to-dec($r); }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
