Hello Matlab Community

I have a code where I can input a set of numbers (3) and a random generator that is suppose to match which ever 3 numbers I pick in the given range.

To test this I set my code up like so:

clc

k=1;

s=3;

p=3;

x=0;

code = input('three numbers')

times=0;

while x<1

[~, Stemp] = sort(rand(k, s), 2);

S = Stemp(:, 1:p)

x=any( ismember(code,S, 'rows') )

times=times+1;

end

times=times

I would use [ 1 2 3] and it will run smoothly. However I still trying to test if it works so I only kept it 3. When I run it the answer S will give me number between 1 and 3 in any order but stop when it is all in the right order of example:

#> [1 2 3]

code =

1 2 3

S =

2 1 3

x = 0

S =

2 3 1

x = 0

S =

1 3 2

x = 0

S =

1 2 3

x = 1

times = 4

I would like it to stop when it just has all three numbers no matter which order. Is there a way to do that? Please provide example. Thank you.
