Python Program to print all permutations of a given string

In this article, we will learn about the solution to the problem statement given below.

Problem statement − We are given a string we need to display all the possible permutations of the string.

Now let’s observe the solution in the implementation below −

Example

Live Demo

# conversion
def toString(List):
return ''.join(List)
# permutations
def permute(a, l, r):
if l == r:
print (toString(a))
else:
for i in range(l, r + 1):
a[l], a[i] = a[i], a[l]
permute(a, l + 1, r)
a[l], a[i] = a[i], a[l] # backtracking
# main
string = "TUT"
n = len(string)
a = list(string)
print("The possible permutations are:",end="\n")
permute(a, 0, n-1)

Output

The possible permutations are:
TUT
TTU
UTT
UTT
TUT
TTU

All the variables are declared in the local scope and their references are seen in the figure above.

Conclusion

In this article, we have learned about how we can make a Python Program to print all permutations of a given string.
