Does anyone know where I can find a script that generates all permutations for a 3 or 4 digit number. The script should also remove any duplicate numbers

Try this:

<html>
<title> Permutations </title>
<script>

Array.prototype.swap=function(a,b) {
this.splice(b,0,this.splice(a,1));
}

function showPermutations(str) {
function getPermutations(arr) {
function sameAsOrig() {
for (var i=0;i<orig.length;i++) {
if (orig[i]!=arr[i]) {
return false;
}
}
return true;
}
function p(moveIdx) {
var len=a.push([]);
var idx=len-1;
var i=0;

for (var i=0;i<arr.length;i++) {
a[idx][i]=arr[i];
}
if (moveIdx+1==arr.length) {
moveIdx=0;
}
arr.swap(moveIdx,moveIdx+1);

if (!sameAsOrig()) {
p(moveIdx+1);
}
}
arr.sort(function(a,b) {
if (a>b)return 1;
if (a<b)return -1;
return 0;
});
var a=[];
var orig=[];
for (var i=0;i<arr.length;i++) {
orig[i]=arr[i];
}
if (arr.length > 0) {
p(0);
}
return a;
}

var arr=new String(str).split("");
var result = getPermutations(arr);
for(var i=0; i<result.length; i++)
document.write(result[i].join("")+"<br>");
}

</script>
