Distance calculation from grid coordinates is not recommended unless over
short distance and when scale factor is included.
Geodesic (great circle) distances require special programs. There is a
geodesic program 'geod' in the older PROJ.4 releases but I recomment
using Vincenty's algorithm;

This site has MS procedures, FORTRAN source code and Vincenty's
paper published in Survey Review.
Again, check the above web site; it has everything one could want.
