Subsequences generated by including characters or ASCII value of characters of given string
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 07 Dec, 2020

Given a string str of length N, the task is to print all possible non-empty subsequences of the given string such that the subsequences either contains characters or ASCII value of the characters from the given string.

Examples: 

Input: str = “ab” 
Output: b 98 a ab a98 97 97b 9798 
Explanation: 
Possible subsequence of the strings are { b, a, ab }. 
Possible subsequences of the string generated by including either the characters or the ASCII value of the characters from the given string are { 98, b, a, 97, ab, 97b, a98, 9798 }. 
Therefore, the required output is { b, 98, a, ab, a98, 97, 97b, 9798 }.

Input: str = “a” 
Output: a 97

Approach: Follow the steps below to solve the problem: 



FindSub(str, res, i) = { FindSub(str, res, i + 1), FindSub(str, res + str[i], i + 1), FindSub(str, res + ASCII(str[i]), i + 1) } 
res = subsequence of the string 
i = index of a character in str 
 

  • Using the above recurrence relation, print all possible subsequences based on the given conditions.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
