Use forvec(...,2) if you want to enumerate subsets 1..n of size r. If you want all permutations of the subsets, then you can either obtain the subsets as above and then list the permutations in an inner loop, or you can use something like the following:
forvec(v=vector(r,i,[1,n]), if(length(Set(v))==r, print(v)))
