i'm trying to achieve inverse kinematics using cyclic-coordinate descent (CCD) for a chain of joints - (0, 1, 2, ... , s). from what i've understood of it, i've written some code which does not work at all. could you please tell where i'm going wrong. i've modified the code to make it understandable.
//                  * d (x,y)
//  *-----*------*-------*
//        <---(i) q    (s) p

Coord p, q, d;
Joint *ptrp, *ptrq, *ptrj;
double m1, m2, t;

// 's + 1' number of joints in chain

d = target_coord();

ptrp = getjoint(s);
for (i = s - 1; i > 0; i--){

	p = ptrp->getcoord();
        ptrq = getjoint(i);
	q = ptrq->getcoord();

        // calculate angle 't' between pq and dq using slopes
	m1 = (p.y - q.y) / (double) (p.x - q.x);
	m2 = (d.y - q.y) / (double) (d.x - q.x);
	t = (m1 * m2 != -1.0)? atan((m2 - m1) / (1 + m1 * m2)) : PI / 2;

	for (j = i + 1; j <= s; j++){     // for all children
		ptrj = getjoint(j);

the above loop will be run several times inside another loop.
