Error for function permutation with repetition.

6 views (last 30 days)
Dear all,
I am using matlab 2016b and try to find al the permutations with repetition. But it gives me an error saying: Undefined function or variable 'permn'.
So I wonder, what is missing in is my code is there another function/code needed for my version of matlab?
This is the code:
%Find all possible prob
M = permn(I,3);
Can I have some feedback please?
Thank you in advance

No, I do not think so. It gives me another error: Error using perms
Too many input arguments.
Lets take a small example: I=3:6 and I want to have permutations of 3 with repetition: We should have a list with 4^3 possible outcomes. Some of them are:
3 3 3, 3 3 4, 3 3 5, 3 3 6, 3 4 3, 3 4 4, 3, 4 5, 3 4 6, ......., 6 6 3, 6 6 4, 6 6 5, 6 6 6.

That is exactly the file that helps me to figure out the code. I only get an error when applying the code as I said before. Undefined variable/function

You have to download it and then use it.
