Your program should read its input from a file. Each arithmetic operation will consist of a Roman numeral followed by an arithmetic operator (+, -, *, or /), followed by another Roman numeral. For example, one input line might be:


Your program should read the input, perform the operation, and write the result in both Roman numeral form and decimal form to both the screen and an output file. An example of the output (for the above input) would be:


1655 + 76 = 1731

The subtractive Roman numeral notation commonly in use today (such as IV, meaning 4) was used only rarely during the time of the Roman Republic and Empire. For ease of calculation, the Romans most frequently used a purely additive notation in which a number was simply the sum of its digits (4 equals IIII, in this notation). Each number starts with the digit of highest value and ends with the digit of smallest value. This is the notation you will use in this problem. The values of the Roman digits are as follows:

I 1 C 100

V 5 D 500

X 10 M 1000

L 50

Thus, the number MDCCCCLXXXXVIIII represents 1999.

One way of approaching this problem is to convert the Roman numbers into decimal integers, perform the required operation, and then convert the result back into a Roman number for printing.

You will have to create all of the documentation (description, inputs/outputs, constants, formulas, assumptions, and sample test cases) and the program.


Use constants where appropriate.
The problem must be broken into sub-problems as necessary. (i.e., you MUST have functions)
Your program should allow for any number of operations to be performed, all within a single input file.
Your program should do the appropriate error checking and issue error messages where appropriate. Any invalid numerals should generate an error message. You must ensure that the numbers are in purely additive form—that is, digits are followed only by digits of the same or lower value. Any operators other than +, -, *, and / should generate an error message.
You may assume that all numbers are unsigned (all are positive numbers).

Turn in:

1. Code listing /source code
2. Output to text file

Windows 98
Microsoft Visual C/C++

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
