I'm trying to build a VI that lets me use the letters A B C D E F and arrange them in all permutations (so 720 different orders - 6!)

i've tried doing it with simple N-loop structures, but i'm a bit rusty.

the output would ideally be a 2D word matrix of

ABCDEF

ABCDFE

etc......

help!!

Solved! Go to Solution.

@Mike - yeah ran it on my other computer, it just does the 'how many permutations are there' calculation

thats not what i'm after, i'm after each of the permutations themselves.

so lets say we have A B C D E and F

so it could start:-

ABCDEF

ABCDFE

ABCEDF

ABCEFD

....

and so on, its a simple enough sequence its just laborious to type out 720 lines of it manually,

and i'f i move onto 7,8 or 9 letters gets longer and longer.

no worries mike, its esentially a sequence its done neatly, you can say the first coloumn- the far left one

A repeats 24 times, then B 24 times, C- 24 etc......

The next column over then repeats the remaining letters every 6

B: 6, C: 6 etc......

and so on.
