Is there a free permutation generator online URL that I could go to and type in a set of text (alphanumeric) and get the permuations? For exampel, "abc" would generate:

abc
acb
bac
bca
cab
cba

Similary, "ab7" would generate:

7ab
7ba
a7b
ab7
b7a
ba7

Hmm. Did you try entering "abc"? Gets an error. I had seen that page, too.

The link ozo has provided will certainly does the job.
You could do a search and replace on the output if you need a particular format.
And it looks like the souce code is available if you want to tweak it.

What exactly are you trying to do?

cab
cba
when you type in abc

bcdfghjklmnp

That's past 10 digits. :(

Do you really want to load a 6 gigabyte web page with a list of all those permutations?

The above web page is a JavaScript routine.
We could easily modify it to use abc instead of 123
But if would run a long time to print all permutations of bcdfghjklmnp

Nope, not cracking passwords. Thanks for the insinuation. EE has changed. :(
