 IsPermutation
 test whether a string is a permutation Calling Sequence IsPermutation( s ) Parameters

 s - string Description

 • The IsPermutation(s) command returns the value true if the string s is a permutation of its support, and returns the value false otherwise. A string is a permutation if, and only if, each character in the string occurs exactly once.
 • Note that, since there are only $255$ distinct characters (byte values), the Pigeon-Hole Principle implies that no string permutation can exceed $255$ characters in length.
 • If s is the empty string, the command returns true.
 • All of the StringTools package commands treat strings as (null-terminated) sequences of $8$-bit (ASCII) characters.  Thus, there is no support for multibyte character encodings, such as unicode encodings. Examples
