Thanks, Tom.  Say hi to Steve Ellingson for me; got his document, and enjoyed 
the read.

MatLab plus Simulink is de rigeur for many.  I personally have a license for 
this, on Linux.  We have a large hardware computer design coming in for 
autocorrelating 12 200MS/s streams; it will require the equivalent of an 
800GHz P4; it's going to be done with Xilinx silicon, similar to the setup 
Dr. Ellingson is using with ETA here at PARI.
