Why is Goertzel Algorithm considered a block algorithm? Given that my input is bounded, couldn't I just run it forever (taking every sample that comes out after some length N) given a big enough word size for the intermediate coefficients?
I understand that I would get rectangular window spectral leakage, which may not be desirable, but let's assume it is good enough. If my input signal is stationary, then eventually I should get fairly good spectral resolution, correct?
But what if it isn't stationary? What is the memory of the Goertzel algorithm? How fast does the input signal frequency need to change before I get garbage results?
