I don't think there is one. -findit spline- shows, not very surprisingly, that all sorts of commands make some major or minor use of splines.

In official Stata there is -mkspline- which makes
variables containing the linear or restricted cubic
splines, which you can than enter in any estimation
command. An introductory text on these is 
Harrell (2001). Is that what you are looking for?
