Does anyone know how I can obtain time and sales data for a stock?

Lots of feeds provide the total volume but I would like to see the breakdown of what buy/sell orders made up the day's volume.

I would like to get this via an API so I can analyze it in my code in real time as the market is trading.

Thank you for your help.

    $\begingroup$ @dev Most exchanges have a full order-book feed, though they arrive as binary data rather than via an API. $\endgroup$ – chrisaycock Mar 16 '13 at 13:56
