I've written one using MS Excel and Visual Basic for Applications, which in light of the above comment wouldn't help you much, but feel free to email me off list if you'd like to look at the source code. Note: I'm going to release the finished program to this list once I iron out a few non-critical yet annoying bugs as well as write a user's manual. However, it's still pretty rough and I don't want everyone using it till it works properly all the time.
