[Proj] Reprojection help for a newbie (Lambert Conformal Conic)

This is the code I use to generate a LCC projection (The Format
statement is part of CString which is an MFC class, but its the same
structure as printf() ):
sProjCmd.Format("+proj=lcc +lat_1=%.16g +lat_2=%.16g
+lat_0=%.16g +lon_0=%.16g +x_0=%.16g +y_0=%.16g ",
The parameters for the conformal conic projections supported in the
MAPINFO.PRJ file which comes with MapInfo are:
The parameters for the regional Australian Conformal Conic are:
"Conformal Projection (Australia)", 3, 0, 0, 132.5, -10, -21.5, -33.5,
"Australian Lamberts Conformal Conic", 3, 12, 7, 147, 0, -32.666,
-35.333, 1000000, 10000000
"Australian Lamberts Conformal Conic (AGD66)", 3, 12, 7, 135, -24, -18,
-36, 0, 0
The format of these lines is:
"Name", projection_code, datum_code , units_code, origin_lon,
origin_lat, std_parallel_1, std_parallel_2, false_easting,
Projection code 3 = Lambert Conformal Conic
Datum code 12 = AGD66
Units code 7 = Metres
I hope this is some help.
