This file is a REXX EXEC that converts between Arabic numbers to Roman numerals. According to the source, Peter wrote this tool to teach his daughter how Roman numerals work. From the code:
Welcome to ROMAN EXEC.
ROMAN EXEC is a little programming toy to convert numbers from
Arabic numerals (123...) to Roman numerals (IVX...) and vice
The inspiration for this program was teaching my home-schooled
daughter Roman numerals, and wondering how difficult it would
be to write a program that would convert back and forth.
It was not very difficult as it turns out.

Just for fun, but occasionally handy.
