Willing to Pay for someone to write a Modified Helix Program

Here's the deal.  I need a helix program that can create a helix that has a continuously changing pitch.  I am willing to pay someone to do this.  It is very important that the helix not be cut up into segments in order to accomplish this.  The helix should be along these parameters:
A circular helix of radius a and continuously variable pitch starting at 0 degrees and ending at 90 degrees described by the following parametrisation:
x(t)=a cos(t)
y(t)=a sin(t)
z(t)=??? this is the parameter where the tangent of the helix needs to start from 0 and continuously change to 90 degrees.
I would do this myself but I would rather find a person who is capable so if I have any other programs that I need help on I know where to go.  I also don't know much about .dcl and would like this to bring up a dialog box or whatever they are called so that I can input the parameters.
Contact me at for any questions.
