A240763 Preferential arrangements of 1, 2, 3, ... things in one-line notation, arranged lexicographically. 13

COMMENTS
A preferential arrangement is like a permutation, except that ties are allowed. Preferential arrangements are also called ordered partitions. See A000670.
There are A000670(n) terms of length n.

EXAMPLE
The preferential arrangement of 7 things given by
3=4 < 5 < 1=2=7 < 6
would be represented by
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
3 3 1 1 2 4 3
which in the compressed one-line notation is written 3311243. Obviously this compressed notation only works for fewer than 10 things. In the "human-readable" notation used in the a-file, this example would be written 34,5,127,6.
Thanks to Nathaniel Shar for suggesting the one-line notation.
