I was wanting to come up with a (hopefully) simple script to get the full url of the location that a person was at before they came to my site. (ie the page that the link was placed)

I realize you have to use the ENV VAR HTTP_REFFERER, but how!!??

and then I want to load a page from a file, with the URL at the top. For example:

        Thanks for visiting my page, you came from
            http://www.somewhere.com/link.html

thanks

Spelling is important here, HTTP_REFERER


print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Thanks for visiting my page, ";
print "you came from $ENV{HTTP_REFERER}\n<BR>";
