Print numbers in the range 1 to n having bits in alternate pattern

Geek Week

Given a positive integer n. The problem is to print the numbers in the range 1 to n having bits in alternate pattern. Here alternate pattern means that the set and unset bits in the number occur in alternate order. For example- 5 has an alternate pattern i.e. 101.
Examples: 
 

Input : n = 10
Output : 1 2 5 10

Input : n = 50
Output : 1 2 5 10 21 42

 

Method 1 (Naive Approach): Generate all the numbers in the range 1 to n and for each generated number check whether it has bits in alternate pattern. Time Complexity is of O(n).
Method 2 (Efficient Approach): Algorithm: 
 

printNumHavingAltBitPatrn(n)
    Initialize curr_num = 1
    print curr_num    
    while (1)
        curr_num <<= 1
    if n < curr_num then
        break
    print curr_num
    curr_num = ((curr_num) << 1) ^ 1    
    if n < curr_num then
        break
    print curr_num
