Does anybody know of a package that generates permutations and combinations? That is, the actual ordered/unordered sets of combinations or permutations of elements from a set.

I wrote a little package that does this for the set {1,2,...,n} a few months ago, and just want to check that there isn't already something equivalent out there.

Also, does anybody have a wishlist of combinatoric operations that they would like to see in Stata, other than for the generation of the above sequences?
If I type

findit permut

then I find a lot about permutation tests, but nothing that looks like a package to generate a full set of permutations or combinations.

James should probably send his package to SSC. I don't know if James is using Mata in this project, but it is probably a good idea.

Best wishes

Roger
