Derangements and System` Prefix

Thanks Dan.

This is eerie: although I had been concerned about creating all derangements, I ended the workday wondering about the value of random derangements -- the very matter that your link addressed! I had forgotten all about MathGroup.

In addition to being scary smart, the Wolfram Team apparently has ESP. That always helps in securing the marketplace and in product development.

It isn't difficult to define one's own Derangements function in a line or two of WL code. See this thread on StackOverflow for some very efficient implementations.

Thanks, Ilian. I'll use one of these if there's indeed no built-in functionality (in the kernel) like Combinatorica's Derangements function (which I'm now using but want to avoid because of the conflicts with the kernel).

Also maybe some methods in this thread.
