Is there any coding with candlestick patterns, trends, etc? I have been wanting to write a code for candlestick patterns but I don't know how to go about it honestly any help would be great.

For example: An Engulfing Pattern - it is characterized by a small body, followed by a day with the body completely engulfs the previous day's body.I really don't know the exact percentage of the candlestick patterns to be able to code this pattern.
