This is off topic here, but you can check at Cross Validated and see if it's already been asked there. (I suspect it has.) – David Z Jun 21 '12 at 22:10
I've got C++ code that does this, and I'd be happy for you to grab a copy if you want. Comment here if you want a copy and I'll post the URL. – John Rennie Jun 22 '12 at 7:16
