I am having the nasty IE unwanted caching of javascript, and had to use ctrl-shift refresh to refresh some js on a page.

worse yet, it is an iframe page, so I had to use refresh in the context menu,

anyone know of a way to do this with javascript instead?

You can append a random string onto the javascript file.  For example, append the current timestamp...

<script src="scripts/script.js?34325234534" type="text/javascript" ></script>

To try to get IE to reload it everytime

you can try add
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
between <head></head> tag

I already tried the whole set of header settings

            resp.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate");
            resp.setHeader("Pragma","no-cache"); //HTTP 1.0
            resp.setDateHeader("Expires", 0); //prevents caching at the proxy server

none worked. not a surprise. this non-response has been reported by others.

if no other shows up, it will have to be the uniquer url approach with random number on the tail.
