In this paper we give a generating function for solutions of the type of collapse mentioned in the title. It satisfies a simple Riccati equation, derived from a formula, which holds in the interior of the star. The generating function is unique, unlike in the neutral case. Every neutral solution has a charged companion with the same generating function. The charged solution has bigger radius, surface redshift, mass and compactness than the neutral one. Its rate of collapse is slower. A class of known exact neutral solutions, containing generalised travelling waves, is charged.
