I have a program which classifies using 
the method described by W.D. Fisher in 
JASA 1958: the method is also discussed 
in Hartigan's 1975 text on clustering 
algorithms. But that method is specific
to values in sequences (e.g. but not only 
time series). 

Irrespective of whether you have [CL], 

. whelp cluster 

gets you into the help. See also
