Python Code:

import itertools      
d ={'1':['a','b'], '2':['c','d']}
for combo in itertools.product(*[d[k] for k in sorted(d.keys())]):
    print(''.join(combo))

Python: Convert byte to a string?

You need to decode the bytes object to produce a string:

>>> b"abcde"
b'abcde'

# utf-8 is used here because it is a very common encoding, but you
# need to use the encoding your data is actually in.
>>> b"abcde".decode("utf-8") 
'abcde'
