# This is a script that generates permutations, # given a list of outcomes and the size of the sequences. # A permutation is when we calculate all possible sequences where # it's not allowed to have a repeated outcome inside each sequence. # For example if all possible outcomes are 1 and 2 and we want to generates # all possible sequences, given the sequence size is 2 outcomes, we'll end up # with two possible permutations: (1, 2) , (2, 1). # Since (1, 1) and (2, 2) both contain repeated outcome, # they're not considered permutaions. # The script is written in Python3.4 def calcperm(arr, size): result = set([()]) for dummy_idx in range(size): temp = set() for dummy_lst in result: for dummy_outcome in arr: if dummy_outcome not in dummy_lst: new_seq = list(dummy_lst) new_seq.append(dummy_outcome) temp.add(tuple(new_seq)) result = temp return result # Test Cases: lst = [1, 2, 3, 4] #lst = ["yellow", "magenta", "white", "blue"] seq = 2 final = calcperm(lst, seq) print(len(final)) print(final)
