# Re: [R] Permutations with replacement

If you also want 1,1,1 and so on, the number of these is n^n, (n choices for each of n slots.)
In that case, you could use hcube from combinat.

Subject: [R] Permutations with replacement

Is there a simple function or process that will create a matrix of permutations with replacement?

I know that using the combinat package

###### begin R code ######
> library(combinat)
> m <- t(array(unlist(permn(3)), dim = c(3, 6)))

# we can get the permutations, for example 3!=6 # gives us

> m

[,1] [,2] [,3]
[1,] 1 2 3
[2,] 1 3 2
[3,] 3 1 2
[4,] 3 2 1
[5,] 2 3 1
[6,] 2 1 3
###### end R code ##########

I'd like to include the "with replacement possibilities" such as

```1,1,3
1,1,2
2,3,3

```

and so on. This will eventually be done on 8!=40,320 rather than the development version using 3! as above.

If no function exists (I've Googled on CRAN with no palpable luck), then

perhaps this is more of a bootstrap type problem.
