Description:

This function takes a return-delimited list of values and finds all possible combinations of the values. The results are delimited with single returns between values and double returns between combinations (see sample output). The returns in the output can then be substituted with whatever delimiters you want.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is a great function.
However, if you have a 'b' in the text (and, I suspect, a 'z' or a 'u'), it gets confused and inserts '_zub' in the output.

By replacing the term '_zub' in the function with ∂, the function works correctly — provided that '∂' is not then used in the tex.
