it's open source, comes with Visual Studio you should have it in VS path e.g. "c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\DIA SDK\Samples"

first I scan to find begin and the end of the function (it's not always an easy task) and then just 'walk' the function marking, recording instructions related to stack pointer.

it's manual work but you could use SWIG if you have a lot of functions.
