A colleague wants to generate Arabic numbers from Roman numerals and I was = wondering if anyone has written a routine for this.  She only has I to X so=  I suggested Gen numb=3D(rom=3D=3D"I")+2*(rom=3D=3D"2")+3*(rom=3D=3D"3")+4*(rom=3D=3D"4"=
)  etc.
This is OK for this application, but not if we have many numbers.  Of course the ordering  gets messed up - I, II, III, IV, IX, V, VI, VII, VIII, X so=  encode won't work  and gen numb=3Dreal(rom) won't do either.

Happy holidays.
