Algorithm M

The generation function is genTuplesM as below:

  • Input parameter: we list the limits on each bit into a list as an input
  • Output: generating all possible tuples
module Main where
genTuplesM :: [Int] -> [[Int]]
genTuplesM = mapM (\b -> [1..b])
genTuplesM [3,5,3,2]


Just load the file genTuplesM.hs in GHC, execute it and you will get the result.
