Convert Roman numerals to decimal integers in C++

// Converts Roman numerals to decimal integers.
// This code is very resilient to non-standard or variant forms, but does not handle
// exotic forms such as fractions (S etc.), the overstrike x1000 operator or unicode numerals.
// Andrew Fountain, released under GPL 3.0 or higher
#define ID "$Id: roman_num.cpp 46 2012-08-03 18:24:25Z andrewfn $"
#include <iostream>
#include <string.h>
using namespace std;

/* Helper function for romChars()
 * return the value of a Roman character, or zero if not a valid character
int romCharVal(char ch) {// C    D  E F G H  I  J K   L     M

C++ string handling

Read a line from a file: ( http://www.cplusplus.com/forum/beginner/8388/ )

#include < iostream>
#include < fstream>
#include < string>
using namespace std;

void main ()
        string STRING;
	ifstream infile;
	infile.open ("names.txt");
        while(!infile.eof) // To get you all the lines.
	        getline(infile,STRING); // Saves the line in STRING.
	        cout << STRING; // Prints our STRING.
	system ("pause");

Alternately we can open the file with: ( http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/files/ )

C++ Sample Code

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void f(const char *g);
void f(void);

void f(const char *g) { cout << "Hello, " << g << "!" << endl; }
void f(void) { cout << "Welcome to Paradise!" << endl; }

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
	return 0;
