I need to convert any pairs of geographic coordinates (latlon) into UTM.
This needs to run automatically so that I need an automatic tool to tell
for any pairs which UTM zone it belongs to before converting. Of course I
can encode in my script all possible cases, but before reinventing the
wheel i wanted to ask if there is such tool already within proj.4 library.

Thank you in advance
