comment Why is it important to generate a pseudorandom permutation from a pseudorandom function?
@D.W. Yeah you put it right way ! my misconception is cleared now , by reading about LR and its derivatives work i some how got to believe this is the only way . But inorder to build small domain ciphers i dont see much work building the AES way, although AES is used as PRF

@Reid the resultant combined string length should be less than string length of combined strings concatenated plainly.
