Recursion (slightly off-topic)

P: n/a
I'm trying to convert this:

for(int i=0; i<5; ++i)
for(int j=0; j<5; ++j)
for(int k=0; k<5; ++k)
cout << i+1 << j+1 << k+1 << endl;

Into a recusive function. But I ended with:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void permute(int);
int A[3];

int main(){


return 0;

void permute(int n){

for(int i=0; i<5; ++i){


} else {
for(int j=0; j<3; ++j)
cout << A[j];
cout << endl;

Which doesn't work! I'm lost here, could anyone give me a clue?

You are very close! (but it's late and being the Saturday of a very long
week, there is drinking involved)

Shouldn't that be if(n<2)? If n==2 you will call permute(3) which will
cause A[3] = I+1; and there ain't no A[3]
