I often have to generate a sequence of Roman numerals so I created this simple online utility that does it for me. It lets you generate as many Roman numbers as you need, starting from a specific number. It works in the browser and is powered by alien technology from the future.

## How Does This Roman Numeral Generator Work?

This Roman number generator works entirely in your browser and is written in JavaScript. It creates a list of Roman numerals by generating regular decimal numbers (base 10 numbers) and converting them to the ancient Roman writing system. To generate Roman numerals from a specific range, it uses a loop `for (var i = startRange; i <= endRange; i += step)`

. The values `startRange`

, `endRange`

, and `step`

are integers that can be changed in the options. At each iteration, it converts the decimal number `i`

to a Roman number via the `toRoman`

conversion function. This function is imported from the Roman JavaScript library and it's designed to assign symbols I, V, X, L, C, D, M to decimal numbers 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000. Each return value from the `toRoman`

function is assigned to the `roman`

variable that is then appended to the `romList`

array. To generate a specific count of Roman numerals, it initializes the `startCount`

, `count`

, and `step`

variables from the options and uses a different loop `for (var i = 1; i <= count; i++)`

. In the loop, it calls the `roman = toRoman(startCount)`

function and increments `startCount`

by the `step`

value (difference between two numerals). Each `roman`

value is then `push`

ed to the `romList`

array. After filling the `romList`

array with all numerals, they are converted into strings via `romList.join(romSep)`

function, where `romSep`

is the separator character that gets inserted between numerals, and then they are all displayed to the screen in text format.
