How to detect a real-time signal's local maxima and minima?

Most toolkits require all data before detection of maxima and minima happens. What if I have a real-time signal "feed" and I need a detector that measures whether the gradient slightly behind the data point at current time? So this is a gradient checking function to determine if the next point belongs to a local maxima or minima region.
Does anyone know a function or toolkit that is capable of doing this?

Detecting an instantaneous maxima (or minima) only depends on whether the most recent sample is higher or lower than the other samples within a lagged time window. For example, if the data were to monotonically increase, every sample would be a local maxima. Maybe a visual inspection of the data would be helpful to suggest ideas.
