     The PHP Group have made sure to include many number conversion functions (i.e. decbin(), bin2hex(), et cetera) but they forgot to include one extremely important function (well, not that important). They forgot a decimal to Roman numeral converter! I forgive them for such an oversight, and have written a function to accomplish the conversion. Originally released in July 2002, dec2roman() has been recoded (and optimized) from it's primitive ancestor. The original code was built to compliment an outline I built.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
