Convert PMS color to RGB

I need to convert a PMS color to RGB, and I don't have Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. Could somebody please tell me what RGB color makes the closest match with PMS 542 (it also says C 65/ M 19/ Y1 /K4 but I don't know what this means)

Also the C 65/ M 19/ Y1 /K4 are the process values if you wanted to print the PMS in colour process mode such as offset litho print.

I take you have been given a colour that you have to reproduce for on screen use such as web. You can ignore CMYK for that purpose. But if anyone asks you later to produce the same art for print then you know what colour to choose in CMYK...
