Python – All possible concatenations in String List

Sometimes, while working with String lists, we can have a problem in which we need to perform all possible concatenations of all the strings that occur in list. This kind of problem can occur in domains such as day-day programming and school programming. Let’s discuss a way in which this task can be performed.

Input : test_list = [‘Gfg’, ‘Best’]
Output : [‘Gfg’, ‘Best’, ‘GfgBest’, ‘BestGfg’]

Input : test_list = [‘Gfg’]
Output : [‘Gfg’]

Method : Using permutations() + join() + loop
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of concatenation using join() and all possible combination extraction using permutations().





# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# All possible concatenations in String List
# Using permutations() + loop
from itertools import permutations
# initializing list
test_list = ['Gfg', 'is', 'Best']
# printing original list 
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
# All possible concatenations in String List
# Using permutations() + loop
temp = []
for idx in range(1, len(test_list) + 1):
    temp.extend(list(permutations(test_list, idx)))
res = []
for ele in temp:
# printing result 
print("All Sring combinations : " + str(res))


Output :

The original list : [‘Gfg’, ‘is’, ‘Best’]
All Sring combinations : [‘Gfg’, ‘is’, ‘Best’, ‘Gfgis’, ‘GfgBest’, ‘isGfg’, ‘isBest’, ‘BestGfg’, ‘Bestis’, ‘GfgisBest’, ‘GfgBestis’, ‘isGfgBest’, ‘isBestGfg’, ‘BestGfgis’, ‘BestisGfg’]
