Has anybody ever written the Dolby encode/decode algorithm in Windows-based
software?

The question arose when a friend of mine told me about some orphaned Dolby
B-encoded tapes. These apparently are reel-to-reel and without calibration
tones. Granted, without the calibration tone, decoding of the tapes would be
pure guesswork. However, a computer-based program would at least allow
non-real-time experimentation so that a plausible reference level could be
established.
