Print all possible strings that can be made by placing spaces

  • Difficulty Level : Medium

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.  

C++




// C++ program to print all strings that can be
// made by placing spaces
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
void printSubsequences(string str)
{
    int n = str.length();
    unsigned int opsize = pow(2, n - 1);
  
    for (int counter = 0; counter < opsize; counter++) {
        for (int j = 0; j < n; j++) {
  
            cout << str[j];
            if (counter & (1 << j))
                cout << " ";
        }
        cout << endl;
    }
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    string str = "ABC";
    printSubsequences(str);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to print all strings that can be
// made by placing spaces
import java.util.*;
class GFG
{
static void printSubsequences(String s)
{
    char[] str= s.toCharArray();
    int n = str.length;
    int opsize = (int)(Math.pow(2, n - 1));
  
    for (int counter = 0; counter < opsize; counter++) {
        for (int j = 0; j < n; j++) {
  
            System.out.print(str[j]);
            if ((counter & (1 << j)) > 0)
                System.out.print(" ");
        }
        System.out.println();
    }
}
  
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    String str = "AB";
    printSubsequences(str);
}
}

    for counter in range(opsize):
        for j in range(n):
            print(str[j], end = "")
            if (counter & (1 << j)):
                print(" ", end = "")
  
        print("\n", end = "")

// Function to print all subsequences
function printSubsequences(s)
{

    let n = str.length;
    let opsize = Math.pow(2, n - 1);
    
    for(let counter = 0; counter < opsize; counter++) 
    {
        for(let j = 0; j < n; j++) 
        {
            document.write(str[j]);
                
            if ((counter & (1 << j)) > 0)
                document.write(" ");
        }
        document.write("</br>");
    }
}
  
// Driver code
let str = "ABC";
printSubsequences(str);
