Generate all permutations of given length such that every permutation has more or equal 1’s than 0’s in all prefixes of the permutation.

Examples:

Input: len = 4 Output: 1111 1110 1101 1100 1011 1010 Note that a permutation like 0101 can not be in output because there are more 0's from index 0 to 2 in this permutation. Input: len = 3 Output: 111 110 101 Input: len = 2 Output: 11 10

Like permutation generation problems, recursion is the simplest approach to solve this. We start with an empty string, attach 1 to it and recur. While recurring, if we find more 1’s at any point, we append a 0 and make one more recursive call.

Below is the implementation:

## C++

`// C++ program to generate all permutations of 1's and 0's such that ` `// every permutation has more 1's than 0's at all indexes. ` `#include <iostream> ` `#include <cstring> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// ones & zeroes --> counts of 1's and 0's in current string 'str' ` `// len ---> desired length of every permutation ` `void` `generate(` `int` `ones, ` `int` `zeroes, string str, ` `int` `len) ` `{ ` ` ` `// If length of current string becomes same as desired length ` ` ` `if` `(len == str.length()) ` ` ` `{ ` ` ` `cout << str << ` `" "` `; ` ` ` `return` `; ` ` ` `} ` ` ` ` ` `// Append a 1 and recur ` ` ` `generate(ones+1, zeroes, str+` `"1"` `, len); ` ` ` ` ` `// If there are more 1's, append a 0 as well, and recur ` ` ` `if` `(ones > zeroes) ` ` ` `generate(ones, zeroes+1, str+` `"0"` `, len); ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver program to test above function ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `string str = ` `""` `; ` ` ` `generate(0, 0, str, 4); ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `}` |
