Thank you all.  My friend has lost his copy the program he was talking about in one of his computer moves.  I will email the original authors.

This question has come up before:

http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2006-08/msg00166.html

I suggest you email the person who claims he got a copy of it.

As a sidelight, I wish people would either put their stuff on SSC, or 
else register their sites so -findit- could locate their routines.
