```Hi Virgil,

the above code produces all the permutations of a list, except those that
reverse their ordering.
The function is recursive but I suppose that an iterative algorithm can be
wrote easily, i.e. for large list.

<< DiscreteMath`Combinatorica`

NotReversingPermutations[l_List] := {l} /; Length[l] <= 2

NotReversingPermutations[l_List] :=
Module[
{e = Last[l], n = Length[l], r},
r = Table[Insert[#, e, -i], {i, 1, n}] & /@
NotReversingPermutations[Drop[l, -1]];
Flatten[r, 1]
];

HTH
