Once the table created the algorithm run in linear swap time.

Here is Dirk Van der Mortels attempt not that impressive hangs up at 9 digits, of course there is much better ways. But the framework seem ok, so maybe i can use it to compare algorithms. How is permutations algorithm used generally, is it in gaming industri, or is there other applications for shuffle algorithms?
I did read a post here about someone who needed it for statistical analyse of datasamples, but i never understood what he was after, don't you sort the samples to make statistical analyse?
I was thinking doing a webpage comparing various algorithms for writing permutations, so if you can write some javascript code or pseudo code can you post it here.
