This does what you want: << DiscreteMath`Combinatorica` perm=NthPermutation[500, {a, b, c, d, e, 1, 2, 3}] {a,b,2,c,3,e,d,1} StringJoin[Map[ToString,perm]] ab2c3ed1 Steve Luttrell "BV" <dont at bug.me> wrote in message news:cejsat$cpo$1 at smc.vnet.net... > Result of a calculation {a, b, 2, c, 3, e, d, 1} needs to be printed out > immediately as ab2c3ed1 (without commas and parentheses) > > How is this done? > > > For example, when this is typed: > > << DiscreteMath`Combinatorica` > NthPermutation[500, {a, b, c, d, e, 1, 2, 3}] > > result is: > {a, b, 2, c, 3, e, d, 1} > > How do I get directly: > > ab2c3ed1 > > without commas and parentheses? >
