# Re: [Jprogramming] Quora problem

`a general approach that uses much longer code, but permutations of combinations,`
```
perm =: i.@! A. i.
combT =: [: ; ([ ; [: i.@>: -~) ((1 {:: [) ,.&.> [: ,&.>/\. >:&.>@:])^:(0 {::
[) (<i.1 0) ,~ (<i.0 0) \$~ -~

# 10 #."1 /:~ >: ,/ ({~ perm@#)"1 ]  3  combT 9

I think Skip wants all permutations, not just increasing and decreasing
ones,
so here's an alternative:
5({.,(-@[){.])        10#.(#~(3=#@~.)"1) >: 9#.inv i. 9^3
123 124 125 126 127 983 984 985 986 987

The initial 5 ( ) is of course just to limit the output!

Any use?
Mike
