Accepted answer

Did you search in the FileExchange already? This would be a good idea before asking the forum. What about http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/10064-allcomb?

A=[1 6]; B=[2 3 4]; C=[8 9];

Use function `fullfact` from `Statistics Toolbox`.

for your case:

t = {A,B,C}; k = cellfun(@numel,t); ii = fullfact(k); idx = bsxfun(@plus,ii,cumsum(k) - k); s = [t{:}]; comb = s(idx); comb = reshape(sortrows(comb)',1,[]); % ADD

We cannot generalize your program, we we do not see it. So please post your code, when you want us to help.
