It gives all possible combinations as a matrix (default) or list. Then,
# Name changed to 'DF',
# 'df' is the R function for the F distribution density
# (and a frequent choice for example data in R-help!)
DF <- data.frame(ID = c(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10),
value = c(34,12,23,25,34,42,48,29,30,27))
f <- function(j, v, const) abs(mean(v[j]) - const)
inxmat <- with(DF, combn(ID, 7))
meansDist1 <- apply(inxmat, 2, function(jnx) f(jnx, DF$value, 35))
(i1 <- which(meansDist1 == min(meansDist1)))
inxmat <- with(DF, combn(ID, 3))
meansDist2 <- apply(inxmat, 2, function(jnx) f(jnx, DF$value, 45))
(i2 <- which(meansDist2 == min(meansDist2)))
meansDist3 <- meansDist1 + meansDist2 # Compromise of both criteria?
(i3 <- which(meansDist3 == min(meansDist3)))
Maybe it's combn(1:10, 3)[, 101] you want, or maybe there's another way to
compromise the two criteria.
Hope this helps,
