The function that you want is KSubsets within the standard package 


data1 = Range[4];  data2 = Range[8];

KSubsets[data1, 3]


Length[KSubsets[data2, 4]]

	I have a list X={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8}. How do I get a list of the
folllowing kind:

	S={{1,2,3,4}, {1,2,3,5}, {1,2,3,6}, .....}. 

S will have 8-choose-2 = 70 elements. Each element of S should have length

	Is there any function which does such list making? Something of
the form 

	?????[list, n]

	Thanks in advance.
