Print all the permutation of length L using the elements of an array | Iterative
  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 29 Apr, 2021

Given an array of unique elements, we have to find all the permutation of length L using the elements of the array. Repetition of elements is allowed.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr = { 1, 2 }, L=3 
Output: 
111 
211 
121 
221 
112 
212 
122 
222
Input: arr = { 1, 2, 3 }, L=2 
Output: 
11 
21 
31 
12 
22 
32 
13

Approach: 
 

  • To form a sequence of length L with N number of elements, it is known that the i-th element of the sequence can be filled in N ways. So there will be N^{L} sequences
  • We will run a loop from 0 to (N^{L} - 1) , for every i we will convert i from base 10 to base N. The digits of the converted number will represent the indices of the array
  • We can print all the N^{L} sequences by this way.

Below is the implementation of the approach: 
 



C++




// C++ implementation
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Convert the number to Lth
// base and print the sequence
void convert_To_Len_th_base(int n,
                            int arr[],
                            int len,
                            int L)
{
    // Sequence is of length L
    for (int i = 0; i < L; i++) {
        // Print the ith element
        // of sequence
        cout << arr[n % len];
        n /= len;
    }
    cout << endl;
}
 
// Print all the permuataions
void print(int arr[],
           int len,
           int L)
{
    // There can be (len)^l
    // permutations
    for (int i = 0; i < (int)pow(len, L); i++) {
        // Convert i to len th base
        convert_To_Len_th_base(i, arr, len, L);
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3 };
    int len = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    int L = 2;
 
    // function call
    print(arr, len, L);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation for above approach
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG
{
     
// Convert the number to Lth
// base and print the sequence
static void convert_To_Len_th_base(int n, int arr[],
                                   int len, int L)
{
    // Sequence is of length L
    for (int i = 0; i < L; i++)
    {
        // Print the ith element
        // of sequence
        System.out.print(arr[n % len]);
        n /= len;
    }
    System.out.println();
}
 
// Print all the permuataions
static void print(int arr[], int len, int L)
{
    // There can be (len)^l
    // permutations
    for (int i = 0;
             i < (int)Math.pow(len, L); i++)
    {
        // Convert i to len th base
        convert_To_Len_th_base(i, arr, len, L);
    }
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main (String[] args)
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3 };
    int len = arr.length;
    int L = 2;
     
    // function call
    print(arr, len, L);
}
}

Python3




# Python3 implementation for the above approach
 
# Convert the number to Lth
# base and print the sequence
def convert_To_Len_th_base(n, arr, Len, L):
     
    # Sequence is of Length L
    for i in range(L):
         
        # Print the ith element
        # of sequence
        print(arr[n % Len], end = "")
        n //= Len
    print()
 
# Print all the permuataions
def printf(arr, Len, L):
     
    # There can be (Len)^l permutations
    for i in range(pow(Len, L)):
         
        # Convert i to Len th base
        convert_To_Len_th_base(i, arr, Len, L)
 
# Driver code
arr = [1, 2, 3]
Len = len(arr)
L = 2
 
# function call
