Python Question

How to generate the list of combinations with

`allowed_ints`

`goal`

Examples:

`allowed_ints=[1,2], goal=4`

combinations = [[1,1,1,1],[1,1,2],[2,1,1],[2,2],[1,2,1]]

allowed_ints=[5, 6], goal=13

combinations = []

What I've made so far don't works.

`def combinations(allowed_ints, goal):`

if goal > 0:

for i in allowed_ints:

for p in combinations(allowed_ints, goal-i):

yield [i] + p

else:

yield []

print list(combinations([1, 2],3))

[[1, 1, 1], [1, 1, 2], [1, 2], [2, 1], [2, 2]] # not what I want

Answer Source

Using you function try this:

```
def combinations(allowed_ints, goal):
if goal > 0:
for i in allowed_ints:
for p in combinations(allowed_ints, goal-i):
if sum([i] + p) == goal:
yield [i] + p
else:
yield []
print list(combinations([1, 2],3))
```

Outputs:

```
[[1, 1, 1], [1, 2], [2, 1]]
```
