In addition to what I had told you about its existence in the PDB, here
is what I recently found.  The program is still called STEREO and has
been substantially modified (original version 1974 Michael Rossmann) by
Jin-Bi Dai also at purdue.  The latest version of the program is dated
1994 and you can obtain a copy of the source and associated man page
from the latter author.

Jin-Bi Dai can be reached via e-mail at:

Hope this helps.
