Could you specify the requirements and limitations for this algorithm?
Last year I written calc for Linux based on Windows (please don't burn
me here) equivalent though said requirements/ limitiations might have
changed and nothing is valid any longer.

I remember that some parts of specification overcomplicated the
calculator and due to actual, realtime usecases it could be greatly
simplified (that's why I mention that my work is probably no longer
valid). However, these details would help me in reviewing your
implementation and providing suggestions.

And yes, "Frame shape calculator" probably suits this better.
Though this might be just a preference thingy : )
