FIR Window - Taylor

I'm working on a project for school. (No this is not "give me the solution question"). Basically we have to design a FIR filter for an application. We selected Window Taylor Method.
Now FDAtool is wonderful but I want to calculate the coefficients myself using the formula. Now I googled and googled and search all over the place but i can't find any formula that let me calculate the coefficients.
So my question is, what is the basic FIR window Taylor formula and how can I Implement it?

The taylorwin documentation provides references for the signal processing algorithms.

You can use taylorwin in Signal Processing Toolbox to calculate the coefficients for a Taylor window. If you want to know the exact equation, the references listed in the documentation of taylorwin is a good start.
