Purba, I have used R, though not for the Bai-Perron structural break
test.  R is quite a well-known open-source statistical programming
language, with a rich & growing library of programs.  It is an open
source free product, which you can download and install from  .  If you have never used R, it might take
you a little time to learn how, but if you are in the statistics
research profession, it is likely to be an useful addition to your
knowledge set.
All this is essentially quite independent of Eviews, though it seems
the latest Eviews package has some method of linking to R.

Bai-Perron (1998) breakpoints test. It will require you the R. Please
