How to Create a Python Combination Generator?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To create a Python combination generator, you can use the combinations() function from the itertools module in the Python standard library. Here’s an example:

from itertools import combinations

my_list = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']

my_gen = combinations(my_list, 2)

for val in my_gen:
    print(val)

In this example, we import the combinations() function from the itertools module and define a list my_list containing some values.

We then use the combinations() function to create a new generator my_gen that generates all possible combinations of two elements from my_list.

We use a for loop to iterate over the values generated by my_gen and print them to the console.

The resulting output will be:

('a', 'b')
('a', 'c')
('a', 'd')
('b', 'c')
('b', 'd')
('c', 'd')

This example demonstrates how to use the combinations() function to generate all possible combinations of a set of values. You can modify this example to generate combinations of different lengths or from different sets of values.
