I don't know of any stepwise implementation and searching with google
I find mostly articles with the message:
"Stepwise Descriptive or Predictive Discriminant Analysis: Don't Even
Think about Using It!"
is the title of:
or see http://epm.sagepub.com/cgi/content/refs/55/4/525
There are several python packages on machine learning and classifier
analysis that might do something similar to what you want.
or logistic regression in nipy neuroimaging stats.models
FDANode in http://mdp-toolkit.sourceforge.net/tutorial.html#node-list
and there are several others.
However, I don't know how easy it is, to use just the discriminant
analysis without the overhead of learning an entire package, and for
just a linear discriminant analysis they might be overkill.
