Given a number n, the task is to generate n bit Gray codes (generate bit patterns from 0 to 2^n-1 such that successive patterns differ by one bit)
Input : 2 Output : 0 1 3 2 Explanation : 00 - 0 01 - 1 11 - 3 10 - 2 Input : 3 Output : 0 1 3 2 6 7 5 4
We have discussed an approach in Generate n-bit Gray Codes
This article provides a backtracking approach to the same problem. Idea is that for each bit out of n bit we have a choice either we can ignore it or we can invert the bit so this means our gray sequence goes upto 2 ^ n for n bits. So we make two recursive calls for either inverting the bit or leaving the bit as it is.
