Hi all,

I'm working on a problem that requires the procrustes alignment of two
sets of data, but it is important that the proposed transformation
does not allow reflection. The MatLab procrustes function allows this
and I was wondering if anyone knows of a freely available m-file that
will perform Procrustes analysis without allowing reflection.

Thanks in advance,

Ben.
