No; it is not on SSC. 

-search renvars- shows 
that it is in the STB-60 files. Note carefully that 
the version of -renvars- in STB-60 was written 
by Jeroen Weesie and myself, and supersedes
the version still on Jeroen's website. 
The latter remains of use to people still
on Stata 6. 




show the difference.
