[Rasch] Data simulation

Hello to everybody on the list,

I am currently planing a simulation study on some properties of the Rasch model. Unfortunatley, I can't find a straightforward way to simulate correlated error terms between dichotomous items in order to investigate different effects of model violations.  
So finally I need to obtain matrices of dichotomous item responses with a priori specified degrees of violations of the local stochastic independence assumption/requirement.

Does anybody have an idea how this problem could be solved? Perhaps with Matlab, Mathematica, SAS, SPSS or something else?

Thanks in advance!
