Does Mma have an idiom for permutations equivalent to python iterators
which step through a loop
without constructing it?

# sage: 19-digit pandigital palindromic primes
perms = permutations_iterator(range(10))
ppps = []
for perm in perms:
    nstr = ''.join(map(str, perm))
    n = int(nstr + nstr[-2::-1]) # 18 dig. if initial 0; but then comp. anyway
    if is_prime(n):

(For the record, I find 78695 19-digit numbers.)
