Print all possible strings that can be made by placing spaces

Given a string you need to print all possible strings that can be made by placing spaces (zero or one) in between them
Examples :

Input :  str[] = "ABC"
Output : ABC
         AB C
         A BC
         A B C

Input : str[] = "ABCD"
Output : ABCD
         A BCD
         AB CD
         A B CD
         ABC D
         A BC D
         AB C D
         A B C D

If we take a closer look, we can notice that this problem boils down to Power Set problem. We basically need to generate all subsets where every element is a different space.
