What is meant by "accurately"?. I.e., how do you test and how close do the results have to be before you'd say the analysis method is accurate? The method described at http://ccrma.stanford.edu/~jos/parshl/parshl.html does a pretty darn good job. We have an implementation similar to this in our SNDAN package which performs very well on harmonic and inharmonic sounds.
