Topic: Open random PDF-file

I'm looking for a javascript, that will enable opening random pdf-files, and at the same time ensuring that each file only will appear once.
The listed script seems quite OK (draws randomly 1.pdf to 4.pdf). However, the same file could show up several times:

var c = this.getField("Random");
var e = Math.random()
c.value = Math.floor(e * 4) +1
app.openDoc(c.value +".pdf",this)

I think i need an array containing all 'used' numbers, and a statement that will check any new number with the array. I just don't get it right, and sure would appreciate any piece of advice.
