subsets creates a matrix of indexes where rows are distinct psubsets extracted from a set of n elements
Only default arguments used.
C = subsets(5,100,3)
C = 5×3 int8 matrix 30 41 85 19 84 95 7 59 61 46 50 54 77 97 98
Use information on the number of combinations to speed up generation.
ncomb = bc(100,3); C = subsets(5,100,3,ncomb)
C = 5×3 int8 matrix 19 20 70 10 55 88 13 53 67 5 46 74 52 59 67
Also inform about the time taken for the operation.
ncomb = bc(1000,5); C = subsets(500000,1000,5,ncomb,1);
Warning: you have specified to extract more than 100000 subsets To iterate so many times may be lengthy
As the previous example, but in addition returns in nselected the number of combinations.
ncomb = bc(1000,5); [C , nselected] = subsets(500000,1000,5,ncomb,1);

nsamp
— Number of subsamples which have to be extracted.
Scalar;
if nsamp=0 all subsets will be extracted; they will be (n
choose p).
Data Types: singledouble
p
— Size of the subsets.
Scalar.In regression with p explanatory variable the size of the elmental subsets is p;
in multivariate analysis, in presence of v variables, the size of the elemental subsets is v+1.
Data Types: singledouble
ncomb
— scalar (n choose p).
If the user has already computed this
value it can supply it directly, otherwise the program will
calculate it automatically.
Example: C=subsets(20,10,3,120)
Data Types: singledouble
msg
— scalar which controls whether to display or not messages
on the screen.
If msg=true (default), messages are displayed
on the screen about estimated time.
Example: C=subsets(20,10,3,120,0)
Data Types: boolean
method
— Sampling methods.
Scalar or vector.Methods used to extract the subsets. See section 'More About' of function randsampleFS for details about the sampling methods. Default is method = 1.
 Scalar, from 0 to 3 determining the (random sample without replacement) method to be used.
 Vector of weights: in such a case, Weighted Sampling Without Replacement is applied using that vector of weights.
Example: randsampleFS(100,10,2)
Data Types: singledouble
C
—The indices of the subsets which need to be extracted.
Matrix with nselected rows and p columns (stored in int16 format)Data Types  singledouble
