On September 2, 1997, Marc Borms asked for a program to generate all
combinations of a set "v". 

The question is susceptible of many interpretations,

If it means that one is looking for a program to generate all subsets of
"v" containing a prescribed number "k" of elements,  
the answer to the question is the function KSubsets[v,k] in the package
Combinatorica of the folder DiscreteMath within the StandardPackages
among the AddOns. Observe, however, that KSubsets does not check
whether  "v" is made of distinct elements.
