just write a loop to replace each letter in the next position...and then loop for string's length

Just split the string into words:

string word[] = input.Split(' ');

and get the permutations for each word.

Do you want the permuations for each word (i.e. for the example 120+120 combinations), or do you want all combinations of all permutations of all words (120*120 combinations)?

Yes, but do you want the permuations for each word separately, or all combinations of all permuatations?

I.e. for "ab cde", do you want:

ab, ba
cde, ced, dce, dec, ecd, edc

or

ab cde
ab ced
ab dce
ab dec
ab ecd
ab edc
ba cde
ba ced
ba dce
ba dec
ba ecd
ba edc

For the first, just loop through the words and get the permuations. For the second you would create a list for each word that contains the permutations, then use an array of indexes to loop through all combinations.
