Vikram,

you didn't look carefully. There IS a link in the text above

"The complete source code for my Perl script is available by anonymous download in the file ftp://ftp.ssc.com/pub/lj/listings/issue44/2416.tgz ."

I tried it today and not only found the script but made it working on my RH 8.0 Linux machine.

I also found modified version on

http://formaggio.cshl.org/labdocfiles/

where - since the results are published - I downloaded the gif images of balls and the piglet.

Good luck,

Martin
