#Roman numeral calculator first_str = raw_input('Enter the first Roman Number (with no spaces):') first_str = first_str.upper() print 'Print you entered', first_str,'for the first number.' second_str = raw_input('Enter the second Roman Number (with no spaces):') second_str = second_str.upper() print 'Print you entered', second_str,'for the second number.' I = 1 V = 5 X =10 L = 50 C = 100
so when I use first_str = int(first_str)
it doesnt work so it doesnt recognize it as a number, so if you could offer a start as how to get around this, i'd really appreciate it.
