# Generate all binary strings without consecutive 1’s

Given a integer K. Task is Print All binary string of size K (Given number).

Examples:

Input : K = 3 Output : 000 , 001 , 010 , 100 , 101 Input : K = 4 Output :0000 0001 0010 0100 0101 1000 1001 1010

Idea behind that is IF string ends with ‘1’ then we put only ‘0’ at the end. IF string ends with ‘0’ then we put both ‘0’ and ‘1’ at the end of string for generating new string.

Below is algorithm

K : size of string First We Generate All string starts with '0' initialize n = 1 . GenerateALLString ( K , Str , n ) a. IF n == K PRINT str. b. IF previous character is '1' :: str[n-1] == '1' put str[n] = '0' GenerateAllString ( K , str , n+1 ) c. IF previous character is '0' :: str[n-1] == '0' First We Put zero at end and call function PUT str[n] = '0' GenerateAllString ( K , str , n+1 ) PUT str[n] = '1' GenerateAllString ( K , str , n+1 ) Second Generate all binary string starts with '1' DO THE SAME PROCESS

Below is recursive implementation.
