Strobogrammatic number

For the given length n, find all n-length Strobogrammatic numbers.

Strobogrammatic Number is a number whose numeral is rotationally symmetric so that it appears the same when rotated 180 degrees. In other words, Strobogrammatic Number appears the same right-side up and upside down.

0 after 180° rotation : (0 → 0)
1 after 180° rotation : (1 → 1)
8 after 180° rotation : (8 → 8)
6 after 180° rotation : (6 → 9)
9 after 180° rotation : (9 → 6)



Examples :

Input : n = 2
Output : 88  11  96  69

Input : n = 4
Output : 8008 1001 9006 6009 8888 1881 9886 6889 8118 1111
         9116 6119 8968 1961 9966 6969 8698 1691 9696 6699
