This is an implementation with lots of parentheses :)
#lang scheme (define (sum-of-ints li [sum 0]) (if [< (length li) 2] (+ sum (apply + li)) (let ([f (first li)] [s (second li)]) (if [> s f] (sum-of-ints (cddr li) (+ sum (- s f))) (sum-of-ints (cdr li) (+ sum f)))))) (define roman-to-dec '()) (set! roman-to-dec (let ([rtoa #hash((#\M . 1000) (#\D . 500) (#\C . 100) (#\L . 50) (#\X . 10) (#\V . 5) (#\I . 1))]) (lambda (roman) (sum-of-ints (map (lambda (x) (hash-ref rtoa x)) (string->list (string-upcase roman))))))) (define test-data '("XLII" "LXIX" "mi" "MCMLXXXV")) (for ([r test-data]) (printf "~a ~a~n" r (roman-to-dec r)))
+% mzscheme XLII 42 LXIX 69 mi 1001 MCMLXXXV 1985
Like the perl version, it uses a lexical scope to hide the hash.

It however uses a method of combining the numbers that is closer to how we'd do it in our heads i.e. following the Subtractive principle

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.
