All possible strings of any length that can be formed from a given string?

CServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this section we will see how to generate all possible strings of any length, this will take each combination of characters to make string. For example, if the string is ABC, then it will generate − {A, B, C, AB, BA, BC, CB, CA, AC, ABC, ACB, BAC, BCA, CAB, CBA}

Let us see the example to get the idea.

Algorithm

printAllString(str)

Begin
   n := length of the string str
   count is 2^n – 1
   for each number 0 to count, do
      sub_str := empty string
      for j in range 0 to n, do
         if jth bit of the counter is set, then
            concatenate jth character of str with sub_str
         end if
      done
      repeat:
         print sub_string
      until next permutation of sub_string is not completed
   done
End

Example

#include <iostream>
#include <algorithm>
#include <cmath>
using namespace std;
void printAllString(string str) {
   int n = str.size();
   unsigned int count = pow(2, n);
   for (int counter = 1; counter <count; counter++) { //generate 2^n - 1 strings
      string subs = "";
      for (int j = 0; j < n; j++) {
         if (counter & (1<<j)) //when the jth bit is set, then add jth character
            subs.push_back(str[j]);
      }
      do{
         cout << subs << endl;
      }
      while (next_permutation(subs.begin(), subs.end()));
   }
}
