"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Oooo... if you turn in that code, it will be too complex, and your teacher will know you cheated!  Chadd, reject this answer and I will post my simplfied version, so your teacher will not suspect your using other sources!  :)

Oh, I don't know.  I just wanted the points.  :)  It just seems that this source code would come from someone who knew how to do simple Pascal programs, not someone who is struggling through the class, which, I assume, chadd is...  But basically, all I wanted was the points!  :)
delphinusCommented:
I thought so. ;-)  I am pretty sure that this code is about the
simplest it can get, considering that the Roman numeral system
is so haphazard in the first place.  Cheers. :-)
