I think you need something like this. It's only for 3 variables, but I think you know how to expand it for more variables.

mat <- expand.grid(a = 0:4, b = 0:4, c = 0:4) write.table(mat, file="C:/Documents and Settings/My Documents/permutations.txt",sep=";",col.names=FALSE, row.names=FALSE)

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.

The plural of anecdote is not data.

The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.

Dear R-users,

Is there an easy way to determine all possible vectors of length 21 with each entry having permutations from 0 to 4, instead of doing it like this?
It really takes up too much time, and I am convinced that there exists something easier.

Can you help me? Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

Elke
