C++ || Class – Roman Numeral To Integer & Integer To Roman Numeral Conversion

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The following is another homework assignment which was presented in a C++ Data Structures course. This program was assigned in order to practice the use of the class data structure, which is very similar to the struct data structure.

REQUIRED KNOWLEDGE FOR THIS PROGRAM

Header Files - How To Use Them
Class - What Is It?
Do/While Loop
Passing a Value By Reference
Roman Numerals - How Do You Convert To Decimal?

This is an interactive program in which the user has the option of selecting from 7 modes of operation. Of those modes, the user has the option of entering in roman numerals for conversion, entering in decimal numbers for conversion, displaying the recently entered number, and finally converting between roman or decimal values.

A sample of the menu is as followed:
(Where the user would enter numbers 1-7 to select a choice)


This program was implemented into 3 different files (two .cpp files, and one header file .h). So the code for this program will be broken up into 3 sections, the main file (.cpp), the header file (.h), and the implementation of the functions within the header file (.cpp).

======== FILE #1 – Menu.cpp ========

NOTE: On some compilers, you may have to add #include < cstdlib> in order for the code to compile.



======== FILE #2 – ClassRomanType.h ========

Remember, you need to name the header file the same as the #include from the Menu.cpp file. This file contains the function declarations, but no implementation of those functions takes place here.


======== FILE #3 – RomanType.cpp ========

This is the function implementation file for the ClassRomanType.h class. This file can be named anything you wish as long as you #include “ClassRomanType.h”


QUICK NOTES:
The highlighted lines are sections of interest to look out for.

The code is heavily commented, so no further insight is necessary. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below.
